6 Strategies To Develop Research Skills As An Online Student
from U.S. News & World Report
Online students now have oceans of information at their fingertips, a double-edged sword creating an information access-versus-quality conundrum. They are a population at special risk for drowning in the information ocean, misquoting sources, stating misinformation or failing to cite a source altogether. Because online learners must literally engage course material on the Internet rather than in the physical classroom, it becomes all too easy to copy and paste an unsubstantiated factoid into a discussion forum or homework assignment without giving it rigorous scholarly consideration. The (mis)information superhighway, social media and unverified opinions published on the Web are just one click away from the online classroom.
