How I Use It
I collaborated with a teacher who did an "If I Were President" project. I taught the students how to create a Weebly website. They were to create pages for topics such as The Economy, Military, Education, Health Care, etc. They could embed video, files, images, text, weblinks, etc. I explained what makes a website attractive, easy to use, etc. The sites they created were impressive. I like Weebly so much, I use it for my own library website (www.chaminadelibrary.org).
My Take
Weebly is incredibly easy to use, provides professional-looking results, and has many options available even in the free version. The Weebly folks are continually improving their product, take suggestions seriously, and offer comprehensive help including video and live tutorials. Students really got into creating their sites, and those who wanted to, delved into the deeper capabilities of Weebly. And excellent resource for teacher sites and/or student projects.
