What is a WebQuest?

A WebQuest is an inquiry-oriented activity in which some or all of the information used by learners is drawn from the Web. WebQuests are designed to use learners' time well, to focus on using information rather than looking for it, and to support learners' thinking at the levels on analysis, synthesis and evaluation.

Best WebQuests A listing of WebQuests by Tom March, one of the originators of the genre.
WebQuests dot Org A large listing of webQuests by Bernie Didge, the other originator of the genre.
WebQuest Taskonomy The task is the single most important part of a WebQuest. It provides a goal and focus for student energies and it makes concrete the curricular intentions of the designer. A well designed task is doable and engaging, and elicits thinking in learners that goes beyond rote comprehension.
WebQuest About Webquests Use one of the WebQuests at this link to familiarize yourself with how WebQuests work by doing one!
