A basic introduction to a very important topic at these times should be obligatory in all high schools, journalism classes or anyone that consumes social media.

Originally, I chose this course to brush up my internet surfing skills. I found the information easy to grasp and learned some helpful skills. But, more importantly, the information was invaluable on how to verify the accuracy of information. For instance, does the author have the expertise in the fields they are providing information to qualify as an original resource, and more importantly, has the knowledge in that subject matter area? I was able to complete this class in a very short time. My thanks to the creators of this class!
