Can positive psychology overcome human realities? provides a format for facilitating WebQuests in all levels of online learning. This WebQuest entitled "B+" asks students the question: Can positive psychology overcome human realities. 

Students explore the question by finding 10 websites supporting their stance. Then, they must switch views (and/or with the help of a partner), finding 5 websites to support the opposing view. 

This short assignment promotes skill with web navigation, intrduction to online learning formats and early interaction with classmates in respectful debate. It also offers a hands off approach as faculty, promoting student driven information and knowledge acquisition.
