I have been doing a lot of reading this past week on WebQuest. I am very thankful to all the examples that are posted because before this week I have never heard of a WebQuest.
I have been searching and looking through all the information to try and figure out What is the difference between the two assignments we have to do- The WebQuest and the Instructional Website?
Can I make these assignments work together?
I'm still trying to figure out these answers. Any help or insight on this would be greatly appreciated.
I have a few answers on what a WebQuest is-
From readings I have concluded that a WebQuest is when all the information on the page is from the Internet.
So I'm thinking if I do a WebQuest on a subject I need to provide information only from the web with links to do more research on that subject.

I view WebQuests as online assignments which are designed to start at one specific point and end at one specific point. A website to me doesn't have the linear design. A website can have more of a circular feel to it where one page is not related to another and each page can take you somewhere else and will not require you to return to original site.

Does that help?

It does help Karen!
Thank you..

I am still looking at everything and trying to wrap my head around the fact that WebQuest is Informational and Instructional is not- I need some Instructions..
And Im trying to not get confused adn put the two together so I can build and use the same research.
