"The Internet, like the steam engine, is a technological breakthrough that changed the world."
We weebly because Weebly is a powerful, easy-to-use tool for building websites. It's a service that I recommend with-out resevation because of the overwhelmingly positive feedback I receive. In the rare instances that it's not embraced it's usually due to the fact that a class website isn't what was needed to meet a teacher's objectives. It's not because of a shortcoming on Weebly's end.
At its core, Weebly is a template-based website creator that allows users to easily create a website with text, pictures, slideshows, videos, documents and more. It allows users to create pages, customize the menu layout, create buttons that link directly to other sites, connect with social media, maintain a blog, and embed objects such as Quizlet flashcards, Youtube videos, or documents.
Weebly does an excellent job of balancing ease of use with the ability to customize a website. They have an education version which allows teachers to set up student accounts that can be managed by the teacher. They have an excellent support section and maintain a blog of their own.
Weebly does have a paid version, but the free side is robust enough to meet most teachers' needs. This site is a Weebly site, and the links below will take you to other Weebly sites created and maintained by members of the Albany City School District.
