MPM107 Web Literacy

11 Oct

Understanding what you are looking at on the web is very important. Basically anyone who has access to a computer is able to create a website

so it is important to be able to know how to distinguish what you are looking at.  One tip given was “Look for the author’s name near the top or the bottom of the page. If you can’t find a name, look for a copy

right credit (©) or link to an organization.” (Duke University). I found this tip to be a great tip. The reason I say this is because in my opinion if you were going to take the time to create a document and post it online, you would want to the credit, so you would use something to mark and give your self the credit, or your company would take credit if you created it for them. I think the websites below are a great resource to check out if you want to learn any other tips to help you evaluate websites.
