To conclude our presentation, we would like to thank both teams for researching the given topic and for their slide presentations. While the research for both teams was well done, the credibility of the articles for

The Refutables
veered off topic just a little bit more, which gave
The Digital Dragons
the advantage. Through this project, we have all come to realize the importance of the credibility of an article, online or in print, when doing research.
