Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Database searching--Study and teaching; Web search engines--Study and teaching;
This project involves the development of a series of web pages that serve as a tutorial students use for Internet searching. Students in the Computer Concepts and Applications class at Hawkeye Community College use the Internet to find information for use in an oral report or written assignment. A limited amount of general information about the mechanics of working with a web browser and a brief introduction to search engines is presented to the students in class. The tutorial will assist students by providing links to search engines, ideas in formulating a search strategy, additional more detailed information on working with directories and search engines, ideas for choosing keywords, and assistance in evaluating the sites they find.
