How to Design a Webquest

Webquests- Here are lessons, organized by subject, produced by teachers,  that integrate the WWW and learning. A WebQuest is an inquiry-oriented activity in which most 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 of analysis, synthesis and evaluation.
