Anyone can post information to this site whether it is credible or not. There are many ways to assess the credibility of information you find on the internet. You need to be able to back up any information you find. For me I always double check with other sites to see if the information matches. You also need to use your instincts. If you feel the information is to farfetched, it probably is not true. If you are not able to find other websites that have the same information, then the information is probably not credible. Knowing where to look is very important to doing any type of research. For me I try to use sites that end in .edu, .gov or .org. I am not saying sites that end in .com or .net is not credible. There is just so much information out on the internet that you need to start with one site and verify the information before moving onto the next question. This may take more time to do but in the end you will find the information to be credible. Taking the time to do this will show you know how to do research and you can verify credible information. There will also be times you find information that is credible but because there has not been much research on the subject you cannot verify it.

    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.
