Communal online encyclopedias represent one of the latest resources to be found on the Internet. They are in many respects like traditional printed encyclopedias collections of articles on various subjects. What is specific to these online encyclopedias, however, is that any Internet user can contribute a new article or make an editorial change in an existing one. As a result, the encyclopedia is authored by the whole community of Internet users. The idea might sound attractive, but the communal online encyclopedias have several important problems that make them much less valuable than traditional, printed encyclopedias.

First, contributors to a communal online encyclopedia often lack academic credentials, thereby making their contributions partially informed at best and downright inaccurate in many cases. Traditional encyclopedias are written by trained expertswho adhere to standards of academic rigor that nonspecialists cannot really achieve.

Second, even if the original entry in the online encyclopedia is correct, the communal nature of these online encyclopedias gives unscrupulous users and vandals or hackers the opportunity to fabricate, delete, and corrupt information in the encyclopedia. Once changes have been made to the original text, an unsuspecting user cannot tell the entry has been tampered with. None of this is possible with a traditional encyclopedia.

Third, the communal encyclopedias focus too frequently, and in too great a depth, on trivial and popular topics, which creates a false impression of what is important and what is not. A child doing research for a school project may discover that a major historical event receives as much attention in an online encyclopedia as, say, a single long-running television program. The traditional encyclopedia provides a considered view of what topics to include or exclude and contains a sense of proportion that online "democratic" communal encyclopedias do not.

<p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14.0pt ; line-height: 106%" lang="EN-CA"><span class="gerrorsc" id="seid0">Based on</span> the given materials, the <span class="gerrorbc" id="seid1">article</span>, as well as the lecture, <span class="gerrorbc" id="seid2">discuss</span> the Communal <span class="error" id="seid3">encyclopaedias</span> which are online resources similar to traditional printed references. The author states that online encyclopedias are not authentic compared to traditional ones, <span class="gerrorbc" id="seid4">owing to</span> the editorial changes made by users. That being said, the lecturer provides several ideas <span class="gerrorgu" id="seid5">to repudiate</span> this claim.</span></p>

<p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14.0pt ; line-height: 106%" lang="EN-CA">Initially, the author says that traditional encyclopedias are written by professionals, while a communal encyclopedia is bereft of accurate specialists. Therefore, they are not trustworthy. However, the lecturer explains that this cannot be true <span class="gerrorsc" id="seid6">owing to the fact that</span> no one can find an entirely accurate and comprehensive encyclopedia, even among traditional one.&nbsp; Moreover, errors in an online encyclopedia can be rectified faster than traditional ones, which take even decades to be corrected. </span></p>

<p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14.0pt ; line-height: 106%" lang="EN-CA">Second, the writer proclaims that hackers and vandals can easily change the contents or delete them in an online encyclopedia, and users cannot distinguish the altered texts. <span class="gerrorbc" id="seid7">Yet</span> again, the speaker underscores that some strategies are preventing online encyclopedias from being changed. One is that crucial facts are in read-only format, which is unchangeable. <span class="gerrorbc" id="seid8">The</span> other is editors who monitor all changes made to articles and eliminate malicious changes. </span></p>

<p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size: 14.0pt ; line-height: 106%" lang="EN-CA">The final point of contention between the reading and <span class="gerrorbc" id="seid9">listening</span> passages is the range of information in online encyclopedias. The author thinks that online resources encompass a plethora of unimportant topics, while traditional one contains more particular topics. On the other hand, the speaker explains that ranging a variety of interest is an excellent benefit of online encyclopedias. Also printed encyclopedias have limited space, so they had to be more specific than online sources, but online sources reflect various topics among, which are scientific facts, events, etc.</span><span style="font-size: 14.0pt ; line-height: 106%" lang="EN-CA"></span></p>
