This is the presentation delivered by Carolyn Royston and Steve Gardam at the Museums and the Web conference in Indianapolis, 15 April 2009.
Carolyn and Steve give a simple, practical guide to steps helpful in developing online e-learning resources. They use their experience of creating WebQuests, as part of the National Museums Online Learning Project (NMOLP) in the UK as a case study.
WebQuests from NMOLP are open-ended, enquiry based resources for schools, which use the 'raw' content from nine national UK museum and gallery collections, set within a carefully constructed framework of supporting information.
WebQuests can be accessed from any of the websites of the nine partner museums:
Imperial War Museum
National Portrait Gallery
Natural History Museum
Sir John Soane's Museum
The Victoria & Albert Museum
The Wallace Collection
