USING AXIAâ€™s EDUCATIONAL RESOURCES
(DOWNLOANDING FILES FOR USE ON YOUR MACHINE OR OIRTABLE DEVICE)
Technological tools provided by Axia College are very useful. The audio resources assist in the classroom like learning experience. I am a hands-on learner so; having this tool is very good for me. The tools that I have used so far are the audio appendixes, the digital stories as well as the tutorials.
The option to download readings in an audio format improves the quality of my educational experience. I am an on-the-go person and I always have my Blackberry with me. Being able to download some of my class material to my Blackberry allows me to learn and do my coursework while I am ...view middle of the document...
The library option is a real online library. CWE is filled with different databases that hold various types of articles depending on your needs. There is even an option to search â€œpeer-reviewedâ€ articles, (articles that have been reviewed by a professional or someone of that profession). The CWE is a great resource for any student because it not only checks any document for plagiarism and writing errors, but it has other resources within it such as tutorial and guides. There are many other resources that Axia has that are just as great as theses.
No matter what school you are in or what class you are in, you will always need a means of finding out information. From a simple discussion question to a long essay, there is a need to search for answers or get information for a topic. Axia provides plenty of educational resources for all of their students that would normally be difficult to find information other than searching the internet, but with Axiaâ€™s resources it is easier to access plenty of articles and information.
IDENTIFYING KEY INFORMATION WITHIN ARTICLES
Conducting research online is different from conducting research in a traditional library because online, you have to be able to narrow your search by using keywords.Â When doing searches on the internet a lot ofÂ your results will have nothing to do with what you are searching for.Â Some of the results will be from other companies and individuals, some information may not be current. The accuracy of the informationÂ may notÂ have beenÂ verified or researched.Â In the traditional library setting the librarian is there to help you with any research problems that you may have.Â All sources in the libraryÂ are accurate, updatedÂ and researched.
My personal approach to conducting academic Web searches will be to think carefully about what I am looking for and narrow my searches using the Boolean logic.Â I will then carefully weed through my results using the CARs test to determine accuracy and credibility.
UPHOLDING ACADEMIC HONESTY
Upholding academic honesty is not difficult at all as it simply means, top my understanding, and do not submit work that was written by anyone else as your own. Do not engage in plagiarism of any type or in any form. If you use someone elseâ€™sâ€™ words at all within the test of any of your assignments you must properly cite the information you run the risk of having part or all of that assignment thrown out and not receiving a grade for that assignment. It is extremely important that you cite all references and any text or though that are not your own, and that you do so in exactly the format and manner that is requested by your instructor.
A hot topic for schools these days is Academic Honesty. Many students are being dishonest in classes because of many reasons. One of those reasons is that people want to save time, so they may copy someone elseâ€™s work as their own, which is called plagiarism. The important this is to...
