“A WebQuest,” according to Bernie Dodge, the originator of the WebQuest concept, is an inquiry-orientated activity in which most or all the information used by the learners is drawn from the Web.  WebQuests are designed to use learners’ time well, to focus on using information rather than on looking for it. and support learners’ thinking at levels of analysis, synthesis, and evaluation.”

WebQuests are a way for educators to present information to their students in a fun and exciting way using the Internet.  They are inquiry orientated web-based lessons that get students actively involved.  WebQuests can be made to meet the needs of diverse learners.
