I have been considering topics for my webquest and have decided on the topic of "requesting transcripts". As I have mentioned I work full time in the Registrar's office on campus and deal with students, employees, alumni, etc. The question that has been asked over and over and over has been "How do I request my transcripts?" I have come to the conclusion that either no one likes to read or the Registrar's homepage is not thorough enough.
It amazes me how many times a day I receive that very same question and I have to give the information out over and over. I figured by creating a thorough step-by-step webquest would decrease the number of times I have to repeat myself, at least than I could direct them to the Webquest. My audience is one that I know well and the Webquest would work because it allows one to update information quickly, link multiple pages, create user and instructor manuals and easily accessible.
I am hoping that the Webquest will allow me to regain my sanity. Otherwise I will just record myself recitng the instructions and just play that every time someone ask me "How do I request my transcripts?"
