A New Look

As the minutes tick down on 2006, the entire WebQuest staff (Bernie, June and Alex) are hard at work getting the new QuestGarden site in order. To distinguish it from this site, webquest.org, we'll be giving it a new look here and there. Part of that will be a logo that captures the idea of QuestGarden, a place to grow great WebQuests.

We've got a few samples to show and would love to gather your input. Please take a minute to look them over and tell us what you think. Thanks!

UPDATE: Survey is now closed. Thanks to the 66 of you who provided input. We have a winner!

QuestGarden Shutdown

No... not for good, but for better!

From December 24, 2006 to January 2, 2007, QuestGarden will be unavailable. We need the time to do a major overhaul and the addition of new features.

During this shutdown we'll be moving all published WebQuests created in QuestGarden to a new site and the structure of the URLs will change. Subject to revision, here is how it will go:

If your old WebQuest was at

...its new address will be something like

and you will have the option of changing that to something like

For a given QuestGarden member, the first part of the URL (e.g. http://questgarden.com/44/285/) will always be the same for each WebQuest they create, so it should be easier to remember.

More changes are on the way and will be reported here when ready. Sorry for the inconvenience during our shutdown... but you really should be doing something else this time of year anyway!
