Credible Sources Count!

Credible Sources Count!

Acadia University promotes teaching and technology through its campus-wide laptop program. In an effort to reach more students in this learning environment, librarians designed a web-based instruction plan to teach core research and information literacy skills through a suite of online tutorials. The project, known currently as Information Literacy Online (ILO), is a collection of cross-disciplinary modules targeting first and second year students campus-wide. This second module was designed to develop the critical thinking skills of students, helping them to evaluate the information they find on the web.

This is a very useful tool for teaching about credible sources. It is interactive and gives immediate feedback.

I like the tutorial very much. Simple message, clearly explained and illustrated with the animation.
