I think this one a very important course especially for students, but it doesn't really give you clear insight on the key materials. Instead the instructors just give the students a couple of links to use for citing resources, etc.

A lot of content was something that youd invariably learn just by googling a bit. Nothing new

I was not impressed with the promotion of Purdue OWL and EasyBib for formatting and referencing. I personally believe the bibliography creation feature in MS Word, in a series of formats, is extremely user friendly and much more effective for quick research paper documentation.
