We’ve all used the Internet to search for the answer to a question we might have. The question could be as simple as “Who won last night’s ball game?” or an in-depth query for our university research paper. This course provides a road map for searching the Web without getting lost, sidetracked, or getting the wrong information. It provides simple tips and examples and points us in the right direction.

This Conducting Accurate Internet Research course is going to provide you with the skills you will need to get the most of an Internet search.

In this course, you will identify ways to develop your creative side and build a creative environment. You’ll also learn a basic problem-solving process, individual creative thinking tools (such as the RAP model, shoe swap technique, mind mapping, metaphors, and toys), and team-based creative thinking tools (such as brainstorming, brainwriting, rolestorming, the stepladder technique, and slip writing).
