General
How I Use It
I use it personally as a repository for faculty professional development. I keep a separate weebly site with reflections on my professional practice and tips for teachers. In class, I teach HTML and CSS however for students with some learning challenges I use Weebly as it is easy to get good results without knowing the code.
My Take
This is a drag-and-drop website creation tool, however from a learning point of view, it is a useful tool for teaching web-design, how to design multi-media projects, lessons related to web literacy including copyright, how to comment, etc. It is also a good tool for blogging as you can add a page specifically formatted for this purpose.
