Online information literacy

Mark Hepworth, a faculty member in the Department of Information Science, Loughborough University, recently posted to the lis-infoliteracy discussion list to say that he had been evaluating "e-learning sites for information literacy". "70 Higher Education (HE) sites and 7 from the workplace, were identified and screened, 30 were evaluated in-depth" The ones that came top were: University of Sydney, Australia University of Newcastle, Australia
University of Leicester, United Kingdom (the link that Mark gave seemed to have been changed: there are various tutorials etc. linked from this page University of Leeds, United Kingdom Queensland University of Technology, Australia Open University, United Kingdom
To quote Mark again "Very few e-learning packages helped people with thinking skills, such as critical analysis, synthesis etc. of information found in articles, Web pages, books etc. or navigating and extracting information efficiently" He will be publishing more information in due course in his blog at
