Safari is an online tutorial that will help you develop your information skills. You can test your progress with activities throughout Safari.

Join the expedition through the information world and discover how to search for, evaluate and manage information.

Come on Safari!

There are two ways of using Safari:

  1. Work through the tutorial from beginning to end
  2. Focus on a particular theme by using the contents page to go to a relevant section

The Safari continues

mobile Safari is a series of revision modules designed to be accessed via a mobile device (phone, PDA etc). They cover evaluating and organising information and each can be completed in about 5 to 10 minutes. To help us develop this resource please send us some feedback on the modules you use. Thanks. Why don't you try Safari now?
