How I Use It
I would use this product to assist students in understanding the kind of information needed for a bibliography. It also helps them understand that there is not one way to create a bibliography that it depends on the style of citation required for the assignment. They can compare an entry for the same source for the different styles (APA, MLA, etc.) I would be concerned that students would rely on the tool and learn how to create a bibliography entry on their own.
My Take
Might be useful in pointing out the different ways a bibliography is created however it does nothing for deep understanding of the creation of a bibliography as the site does all the work for the student.
