Evaluating Websites and Information

This is a website created to share resources on how to evaluate websites and online information. We cover the 'CRAP' test for evaluating websites and also talk about the concept of your 'Filter Bubble' as well as how to be critical when you suspect fake news, 'alternative facts', and propaganda. If you are not sure about the legitimacy of a website or information that you come across, you can utilize what we cover in this website. You can also check with your instructor, a librarian, or a trusted person. If you are not sure, always check.
