Scavenger hunts send learners out on a quest for answers and sources of reliable information on the Web or corporate and campus intranets.
About the examples
The first example challenges learners to find specific regulations about medical testing of human subjects. Learners are provided with a link to the appropriate regulations where the answers are found.
In another example, future Visual Basic programmers are challenged to locate the latest code, documentation, and technical tips for a programming library used to manipulate databases.
Yet another example is about diamonds in Colorado. At the end of the scavenger hunt, learners are asked to draw a conclusion using the information they just located.
The example to the right is a sanitized scavenger hunt used in an ethics course.
The fourth example was built using iSpring Solution’s QuizMaker and converted to HTML5.
