Should students be allowed to use Wikipedia for research? Wikipedia is an online encyclopedia which allows users to freely share and edit information. Therefore, anyone can edit information, which makes it sometimes unreliable. It is easy to make information look as though it was submitted by a professional, but is really just someone uneducated on the Internet. Or, someone who has the wrong facts. I believe that students should be allowed to use Wikipedia, but they should check other sources before using the information in an assignment or project. Information can easily be altered on Wikipedia, so you shouldn’t trust the articles completely.
