This course is beneficial to everyone in a community because it teaches how to evaluate information. With the dawn of the internet, information sharing has skyrocketed. But should you trust everything you read on the internet? Absolutely not. Should you trust every “person” or “organization” that states an opinion or “fact”? Absolutely not. This course teaches people how to sift through the noise and find accurate information that leads to critical thinking and decision making.
I learned about Boolean Operators. These are keywords that help narrow or expand the search results a search engine will return when you use their search box. I also learned what criteria someone must possess in order to be considered an expert on any subject. We also learned about the different presentation software available for educational use and professional use.

Advice for students:
Don't be afraid to try out the different software programs that are introduced. You will need to allow yourself enough time to experiment with them and become familiar with everything they do. I would also advise you to read the book! It is packed with so much information that will last a lifetime!
