Abstract:

This article presents the observation results of the use of different media by students during university computer lab courses. The observation results were supplemented with survey results on general preferences of the students regarding the forms of access to information. This study showed that students prefer to use electronic resources over traditional printed ones, as well as their clear commitment to the use of mobile devices. The students also preferred graphic forms of presentation over in-depth textual analyzes. The observation proved that many students have a problem with assessing the quality of information available on the Internet. Thus, it is proposed to use terms with alternative knowledge or post-truth knowledge to emphasize the importance of the problem of information source credibility.
