Abstract: The impact of the Internet on Society also affects learning at University. Students use not only printed books and their own notes, but also the information available on the Net. WebQuests are learning tools that help the students use the Internet, but under the supervision of the lecturer, who has previously selected the most interesting sites to visit. An experience of using WebQuests with first year Computer Science students is shown, as well as the good results obtained both in the improvement of examination results and in the positive attitude of the students when using WebQuests.
