Transcript

  • 1. How do you know that the information you found online is valid ?
  • 2.
    • 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?
  • 3.
    • 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?
  • 4.
    • 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.
  • 5.  
  • 6.  
  • 7.
    • The following websites may or may not be valid and accurate. Visit each one and decide if you think they are accurate or not.
  • 8.

  • 13.
    • 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.
