OSL Unit 1: Search Engine and Online Information Skills
(OSL Unit 1: Search Engine & Online Info Skills)

OCNWMR OSL (Online Skills for Learners) Course: Unit 3: Building a Professional Online Presence
This is the first of three units which make up the OCNWMR OSL qualification (Online Skills for Learners). All OSL units are aimed at learners who are reasonably computer literate but wish to gain specific new skills. This Unit has six sections, covering some basics on the way search engines index and find information and how they can work best for you. We also discuss ways in which you can judge the credibility and accuracy of data and how to reference the information you find online. The focus of the unit is on finding, evaluating and using online information.
