WHO- is the author or sponsor ?

Is it a reliable person, site?

WHAT- information is provided ?

Does it match other information from valid sources?

WHEN- was the information posted/updated ?

Is it current?

WHERE- does the information come from?

Is it a reputable source such as .edu or .gov?

WHY- is the information there?

Is it there to inform and educate without bias?

Domains

The domain tells you the source of your website.

.EDU = college or university

.GOV = government agency

.ORG= organization

.COM = commercial website

For reliable information, look for sources with .edu or .gov endings.
