The design, construction and evaluation of Web de Anza is a collaborative effort that began in the Spring of 1997. Orchestrated by the Center for Advanced Technology in Education (CATE) at the University of Oregon, the goal of the project is to construct and study a model "web-based study environment" appropriate for instruction in the humanities and supportive of teaching historical inquiry in the schools. Initial funding for the Web de Anza Project was provided by a seed grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities ($50,000). In the Spring of 1998 the National Park Service's Challenge Cost Share Program awarded Web de Anza $30,000 to digitize and add to Web de Anza the English and Spanish versions of eight expedition diaries. These funds were matched by an additional $30,000 from the University of Oregon. Later the same year, the U.S. Department of Education's Consortium for Education program awarded the Web de Anza Project $50,000 to support field-based implementation at 10 schools in Arizona, California and Oregon. Teachers at participating schools are creating lessons for using Web de Anza and adding to the website through school-based research projects focusing on historical inquiry. Beginning May 1, 1999, the Center for Advanced Technology in Education will receive additional funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities for the purposes of expanding the multimedia materials available at Web de Anza and working with an additional group of schools.

Beyond the issue of funding, the Web de Anza Project is immensely grateful for the active collaboration of numerous organizations, agencies and consultants. These include:
