Chavtowns - Britain's worst places to live!
Ok, for part of my Foundation Degree I've got to do a bit on evaluating website searches and then do a bibliography blah blah blah (this is just a module preparing us for our dissertation)..... So, at my fingertips i have millions upon millions of websites...but can i think of one, NO! I have considered the Geek obviously but i could do with more. Doesn't need to be IT related.
So i need a list of websites for me to evaluate. I need to look at 5 things...
Who: who is the author/publisher? Who is the information intended for?
What: what kind of source is it? Is it reliable?
Why: why has it been produced. Is it biased? Is it intended for commercial use?
Where: where was the source published?
When: when was the information made available? How current is it?
If i was you I would pick out some of the factors - such as What - is it reliable - find a website such as the BBC news (ok not 100% accurate) and then one that isn't in always correct (sun maybe) etc

I can help you with any questions, this is my SC and I know the webmaster.
It depends on whether you are after one website or a few.
