This webinar will demonstrate how to evaluate the accuracy of information encountered on the Internet and thus avoid the costly errors that can occur if false information is used in a legal document or proceeding. 

After completing this course, attendees will be able to:

  • Understand why the Internet contains a dangerous amount of inaccurate information
  • Use a 5-step method to evaluate the accuracy of information on the Internet
  • Access additional resources to help evaluate the accuracy of information on the Internet

Various learning techniques are used to ensure that each attendee understands the material thoroughly and retains the instruction over the long term. This webinar begins with an interactive game where attendees guess which websites contain accurate or inaccurate information. The attendees then practice a 5-step method which enables them to evaluate the accuracy of information on a particular website. Finally, attendees learn how to access additional resources to help evaluate a website’s accuracy.

A take-home handout given to each attendee at the end of the course also ensures the attendees will retain and utilize the skills learned over the long term. The handout contains a step-by-step guide to the 5-step evaluation method and explains how to access additional resources that can be used to check the accuracy of information they encounter on the Internet.
