Professor Bernie Dodge, the father of Webquests, defines them as "inquiry-oriented activities in which some or all of the information that learners interact with comes from resources on the internet".
 

The WebQuest is divided into 7 sections. I provided examples from The Perfect Society.

Students generally work in teams. Each student has a role, or a specific area to research. WebQuests often assign students to play real-life situations of professional researchers or historical figures.

 

 

 

Learn how to create and use WebQuests:

 

Today's students need constant challenges in order to focus. WebQuests are problem-based learning activities that engage students in learning. Engage your students in experiential (hands on) learning activities that promote social skills via teamwork, higher order critical thinking skills via inquiry and problem-based learning, and technological skills via the Internet and Microsoft applications. Motivate your students to become lifelong learners by using WebQuests. In this course you will learn how to use and create WebQuests in your classes. In addition, you will learn how to facilitate online classes.

 

Learn about WebQuests and find out what it is like for students to use them.

 

You can build your own WebQuests to suit your subject matter and target population. WebQuests are fun and easy to create. Professor Bernie Dodge has provided design patterns to guide you through the process. I encourage you to try. I will be more than happy to critique and publish your WebQuests online if they fit the criteria set by Bernie Dodge.

 

Zafer Unal has created a WebQuest generator for an easy way to create WebQuests.
