Assessing the reliability of online information
Wed August 22, 2012: 2:00 pm-3:00 pm EDT
Assessing the reliability of online information is a critical skill for anyone using the World Wide Web. While there is a vast amount of information available online, not all of it is reliable or factual. In this webinar we’ll discuss why judging the reliability of information is important and provide techniques and examples of how to do so. One criteria we’ll focus on is the CRAAP test (Currency, Relevance, Authority, Accuracy, Purpose). Participants should leave with some good techniques to get started and resources to continue learning about this important skill.
