Abstract

596 users participated in the study conducted to find out about uses of the web application, ZUNAL, and to identify users’ conceptions of the advantages and disadvantages of using WebQuests for classroom instruction. Findings from the study support previous research on the advantages of using WebQuests for instruction; however, many concerns noted in previous research as disadvantages of using WebQuests were not seen as disadvantages to participants in this study.
