Helpful as far as giving me ideas to help students rate websites. A bit more geared to secondary schools regarding plagiarism. I still have questions about how I find out if my primary students have copied book reviews and information from websites.

I thought it was fairly helpful. Most of the information on plagiarism, I knew beforehand but the information on rating the websites was helpful. I think I may have my students rate a few educational websites.

Good information. For those who can't see the questions or all the screen.... Your monitor resolution should be set at a higher resolution. Then you'll be able to see everything.
