is a self-directed, online exercise that leads students through
the process of completing a variety of tasks leading to a final
project. A good WebQuest has the following sections: Introduction,
Task (objectives), Process (specific instructions with links),
Resources, Rubric, and, optionally, a Teacher's Section. WebQuests
should be written at the language level of the student. If you
conduct an Internet search on WebQuests, you will find thousands
to choose from.
-> Although WebTasks are written for students, students are
encouraged to ask for help. Computers are different and students
may be confused when they see a screen that doesn't look like
the image shown. Also, there are things like "pop up"
windows and links that open new windows on the Internet. The
may discourage users. Instructors need to be available to encourage
students to complete each task.
