I would not recommend that they be be used. However, review their sources, search for them, and see if they are useful to your paper.  Keep in mind that these are students, just like you, doing papers, and you have no idea about how they were received by the instructor(s).  Ask questions about credibility:  What are they credentials of the writers, for example are they a known expert by education and profession?  Was there there a possibility of plagiarism? And just generally, what type of grade did they receive?  Think about it.  If their resource information looks good, try to find it, and then come up with you own information about how to use it.
