Fine Arts 4951: BA Thesis Seminar/Art: Evaluating Websites

Course guide for FINE 4951 (University of Colorado Denver)

Why Evaluate Websites?

Do you believe everything that you read in a magazine? Some of the articles may have been written for entertainment purposes rather than for educational purposes. How do you distinguish fact from fiction in these sources?

Do believe the claims made by all of the advertisements you see in a newspaper? Would you believe an ad in the New York Times more than you would believe an ad in The National Enquirer?

Like print resources, the Web is filled with everything from trash to treasure. How do you evaluate the quality of Web resources?
