Introductory Unit Evaluating Websites (20 points) Since anyone can upload a website to the internet, it is important that YOU know what to look for to make sure the information you glean is relevant to your needs. This is a skill that is useful in both academia and real life. Whether you are writing a research paper for a class assignment, researching the best guitar to purchase, looking for information about your pet’s illness, or trying to decide whether to cut animal products from your diet, you want to know that the information you are getting is the best the internet has to offer. Do your research! You will find several methods of evaluating websites. Important criteria to look for are author, currency, publisher, purpose, and accuracy. Take a look at this resource: Website Evaluation Guide . It walks you through the evaluation process to determine whether a source is credible. Now, you are going to look at some websites and do some evaluation of your own. Let’s assume that you are doing research for a class project. For this assignment, it could be for any class. Your teacher has given you free reign as long as the topic is school appropriate. What research question would you like to answer?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
