You have learned what WebQuests are and may have even completed some WebQuests. You have an idea for a WebQuest and are ready to write one that can be shared with other educators and students. If you have questions about how to prepare and share a WebQuest, you are at the appropriate place.
A WebQuest is an interactive learning activity that has three key elements that make it different from just searching for knowledge.

Learning Advice: Some WebQuest writers may wish to start out with pencil and paper, others may wish to go to the WebQuest Template and do WebQuest without consulting or following most of the steps or consulting any of the materials. Other WebQuest writers may want to follow all the steps and consult all the materials.
It is anticipated you will find an approach to writing WebQuests that will use your own strengths and probably change over time. Good learning advice is probably JUST DO WEBQUESTS. Probably the best learning advice is teach your students to do WebQuests.
Remember: Don't reinvent the wheel. There are some great WebQuests out there already that may just need fine tuning for your class. They will also give you great ideas to start.
Use pictures and sites to accomplish your goal. Remember sometimes a picture is copyrighted. You must ask permission to use the picture unless you are using clip art ( like I did on this page). To ask permission, just email the author of the web page and tell them why you want to use the picture. 99% of the time you will get the permission you need. Using an acknowledgement section seems to be what the major web pages are doing. Be sure that you do that for any pictures that you might use.
