Internet Research: A “How-To” for Students
- Information for Students
Please choose a link below to begin.
- Information for Faculty
This module can be used to help students learn best practices for researching on the internet. It can be incorporated in your course in one of two ways:
- You can add a link to the module to your Blackboard course. You can also assign the module assignments to your students, and have them complete and upload them to Blackboard. The interactive quizzes can be imported into your Blackboard course as trackable SCORM modules (where student completion of the activities can be tracked in the grade book), which gives you a way to document student participation in the self-check activities.
- If you do not wish to add the module to your Blackboard course, or want to use it with a course that is not associated with Blackboard, simply share the link to our website with your students.
Also, Turnitin is available to faculty as a plagiarism detector, as is SafeAssign for those currently using Blackboard for a course. These tools should be used constructively—as a means to help students improve their citation skills—rather than for purely punitive measures.
- SafeAssign can be added to a course via the Home Page in Blackboard
- Turnitin information may be accessed here.
