The use of Web-based learning environments involves cultivating new types of study and research skills among students. Students must be able to find authoritative sources efficiently, evaluate the quality of documents thoroughly, and use and cite materials properly. Students may also need guidance in what constitutes appropriate conduct in respect of the Internet and Web. They need to understand the difference between citing a source and plagiarizing it, how to communicate effectively and courteously by email, and how copyright law applies to resources they wish to use. These issues can be addressed in classroom discussion or in exercises woven into online learning materials and assignments.
