For years, WebQuests have been created and utilized by both students and teachers to craft a structured search and usage of relevant resources from an overwhelming amount of Web-based information, resulting in a specific product as part of a learning outcome. Traditional Web publishing tools, such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage, have often been used to produce these WebQuests. A Wiki permits an individual to easily use a Web browser to dynamically create and edit robust Web pages and sites, either as a sole project or as part of a collaborative effort. This Roundtable discusses and demonstrates the uniquely novel and effective blending of these two technologies into a single entity, a WebQuest Wiki, which can be hosted on any server, and even run portably from a USB drive within a Windows environment.
