Evaluating Internet Sources

You’ll have plenty of opportunities to do online research, and you are encouraged to find videos, images, and articles about any of the topics you find interesting. The best way to learn is to follow your interests in any given subject. BE AWARE, however, that many online resources have no basis in fact (or, often, in reality) and even commonly used resources like Wikipedia are full of errors and half- truths. When doing research online, be sure to examine who is writing what you are reading. Consider their intent and inherent bias. Materials produced by colleges and universities and written by well- known scholars are your best bet for finding meaningful, relevant information to help you with your course.
