About the content
Improve your online research skills and your ability to critically analyse sources of information.
In this course, you’ll explore the rich and diverse range of information available to you online, how to use search tools effectively, and the ways in which you can begin to assess information that you might want to use in your studies.
Using a wide range of learning activities, you will be challenged to dig deeper and think critically about the information that you find online.
