People often assume that any information found on the Internet is accurate and reliable. This is a dangerous assumption when you consider that anyone can publish or post information on any topic. While many will review content with a critical eye there are those who aren’t sure how to dissect information and question its validity. This is where the online resource “The Internet Detective” comes in handy. This interactive tutorial teaches the critical evaluative skills required to assess the quality of an Internet resource.
