Make your own WebQuest or Adapt a WebQuest with our "Short-cut WebQuest Authoring Tool"

Lots of teachers would like to have specific resources for their curriculum requirements that would encourage higher order thinking in their students - WebQuests fit the bill perfectly.

However, do most teachers have the time or skills to create a WebQuest using Website creation programmes like FrontPage or Dreamweaver or to work with HTML? Or to then have it uploaded and hosted with easy access for changes? The answer is that they don't have to!

WebQuest Direct has created a simple to use Authoring Tool or template/proforma that allows you to create your own WebQuest or adapt an existing WebQuest to suit the needs of your students. You will only need to know how to type or copy and paste it is that simple! You can readily come into the authoring tool make changes and press save!

Your WebQuest will then be ready for your class to use!


  • To create an excellent WebQuest suitable for your class
  • To create a shared network of high quality Australian educational resources

To achieve this objective, after you have created a WebQuest, our team of teachers and teacher-librarians will review your newly created WebQuest and send this review to you along with any recommendations to enhance your WebQuest.

FREE Hosting of the WebQuest

WebQuest Direct offers Free Hosting of this WebQuest @ WebQuest Direct as long as teachers agree to have it available to all teachers around the world. Let's stop reinventing the wheel!!!


WebQuest Direct has created an Online Professional Development Course (8 weeks, course materials, with mentoring help) that would be valuable for teachers to complete beforehand although this is not necessary.
