Why do I have to give credit?

Your bibliography ensures that readers can look up the sources you have used to verify facts and even use them for their own research! Citing your sources is also important because it gives credit to the authors and researchers who have taken the time to research and write about your topic.


How to Create a Project in Noodle Tools

Start from the "My Projects" page:

1. Create the Project

Click on   (upper right corner)

Default citation syle: MLA (do not change!)

Default citation level: JUNIOR (do not change!)

Type a project Description in the box: 

Click on 

Now you should be on the "DASHBOARD' page.

2. Share the Project

In the box titled "Sharing and Collaboration," click on 

In Assignment Drop Box, type your teacher's last name 2014 and your section in the dropdown menu and click on it

Type in: First and Last name (if not already there)


You will be back at the DASHBOARD and ready to go.
