The dark side of Wikipedia

luiy's curator insight, May 3, 2013 6:17 AM
Our Mission:We exist to shine the light of scrutiny into the dark crevices of Wikipedia and its related projects; to examine the corruption there, along with its structural flaws; and to inoculate the unsuspecting public against the torrent of misinformation, defamation, and general nonsense that issues forth from one of the world’s most frequently visited websites, the “encyclopedia that anyone can edit.”

Turnitin - What's Wrong with Wikipedia?

Turnitin - What's Wrong with Wikipedia? | Bibliotecas Escolares & boas companhias... |

Educators are well aware of the shortcomings of relying on crowd-sourced content for authoritative information, yet the fact that Wikipedia continues to reign supreme as a top match in Turnitin suggests that students don't see things the same way. In short, what constitutes "research" for students today has come to mean "Googling."

Gaining access to turnitin's resources is a little clunky but worth it. The webinar is 30 minutes long and worth the time. The related SEER resource is also good.
