    Determining Authority And Validity Of Web Pages Determining Authority And Validity Of Web Pages Presentation Transcript

    • How do you know that the information you found online is valid ?
    • Is there a clear author identified? Who is the author? Is the author qualified? That is are they a professor, academic scholar, business professional or someone else who has the credentials necessary to write the information?
    • Who is sponsoring or paying for the website? Is it a reputable business? Or an individual selling something? Or a non-profit organization? Is there a link for more information about either the sponsor or the author?
    • If there is no information about a sponsor or author then the domain name can give you some ideas. Is it a .gov or a .org? If so it is probably more valid and authoritative than a .com? As a .com indicates that something is being sold or promoted for commercial gain and profit.
    • The following websites may or may not be valid and accurate. Visit each one and decide if you think they are accurate or not.
    • If in doubt about a site’s validity, find another  site or go to a journal or database for information Remember that as a general rule a .com is trying  to sell something and so their information may not be as valid as what you find on a .org or a .gov but this is not always the case. Use common sense when evaluating web pages  and the information on them. Just because it is written online does not mean it is true or valid.
