Over the weekend someone recently asked me if I knew of any tools for building web quests. At the time I couldn’t think of any resources, but then I scoured my Google Notebook and found Zunal. Zunal is a free service that walks you through the process of creating a web quest. If you have never built web quest because you weren’t sure how to get started or just saw the process as too overwhelming, give Zunal a try. Zunal offers step-by-step directions that make it possible for even the most technophobic teacher to create a webquest that students will enjoy and learn from.
Once you have registered on Zunal you can get started building your web quest. If you would like to see how other teachers have used Zunal, you can browse the galleries of web quests to get ideas or use one of the web quests if it meets the needs of your curriculum.
Applications for Education
Zunal is a good place for technophobic teachers to build their first web quests. The galleries web quests are handy if you’re short on time or short on imagination for creating new web quests.
