The use of the internet among young people is almost ubiquitous in modern society for personal, social, career and academic purposes. An increasing number of studies have indicated that online spaces help learners to develop language, writing, social and collaborative skills. However, the processes used by learners for searching for information, for evaluating resources and for creating new works are not well understood.
