Blog Posting Assignment #2 (Due by the beginning of Class 5, April 17, 2014)
In Class 4 we discussed Internet research. This tutorial from the National Library of Medicine Evaluating Internet Health Information that can be reached from this URL http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/webeval/webeval.html should help you to reiterate the major points discussed in class. View this tutorial (it's 16 minutes long) and answer the following questions:
1. List at least two benefits of using web sources when searching for health information.
2. List at least two potential risks, when trusting Internet health resources.
3. Why is it important to evaluate web resources in general and especially in regard to health information?
Your answers should be written in complete sentences, not just two-three words. You can write them as short paragraphs, 2-4 complex sentences each.
