Teachers have often reported that the effort required to make a WebQuest live on the web detracted from their ability to use the pedagogical tool. To ameliorate that problem successive technology tools have been employed over the past thirteen years. However, does the tool employed merely act as a transparent medium to enable on-line access to content or may it serve as a partner leading to increased consideration of the efficacy of the content? This brief paper will present the preliminary results of a study centered on the evaluation of sixty-three WebQuests created by undergraduate teacher education students and any relationship between the tool employed and the quality of the WebQuest.
