This tutorial introduces you to Webquests – an internet activity which lets you create something useful for your students while increasing your web "comfort level" at the same time. A well-designed webquest lets you turn your students loose on the web for a specific project and get results that both you and your students will like.

Note: The examples for this tutorial will open in a new browser window. When you have finished with each example, close the example window or use the window selection buttons at the bottom of your screen to return to the tutorial.
