Abstract

WQ is a Web-based system which reflects some of the ideas found in WebQuests. We intend to analyze the characteristics that make the WebQuests so popular and determine which of their components give them the greatest educational value. The WQ system we have implemented presents sites to be browsed and searched. It allows student notes on those sites, and it lets the students manage those notes to respond to the Quest. Ultimately, we hope that the WQ system will incorporate collaboration, integrate digital libraries, be scalable, and support a wide variety of students.
