Creating a Webquest

A WebQuest, originally developed by a team at San Diego University, is a guided online, inquiry-oriented student activity typically consisting of six parts (sometimes the process and resources, and the evaluation and conclusion are combined):

  • The Introduction orients students and captures their interest.
  • The Task describes the activity's end product.
  • The Process explains strategies students should use to complete the task.
  • The Resources are the Web sites students will use to complete the task.
  • The Evaluation measures the results of the activity.
  • The Conclusion sums up the activity and encourages students to reflect on its process and results.
