Improve your grades and impress your friends... learn to be a research virtuoso!

Sign up for CIS 151/LIB 151 - Research Using the Internet. This one unit class is offered online this summer (6/13/05 - 8/11/05), so you won't have to worry about fighting traffic or finding a parking place.

You will learn strategies for finding information from a wide range of sources on the Internet. You wll also learn about evaluating the information you find, as well as how to cite it. Skills you gain in this class should give you the tools to excel in other classes, especially the next time you are asked to write a paper or prepare a speech.

For more information about taking an online class, visit the Online Learning section of the SWC website. Find out if an online class is for you.
