General
How I Use It
I use Weebly as a class website and as a repository for resources. I did pay for the Pro upgrade which removes commercial content and allows for HD video uploading to the site to avoid embedding issues with outside sites. To this point, I the only problem is a video that lost encoding on one of my pages. It is well worth the effort and expense for increasing student access and awareness for my class.
My Take
I have used other GUI website creators in the past and Weebly's current iteration exceeds others available today. It allows for a professional appearing website using a drag-and-drop approach that builds pages quickly. Clearly catering to apprehensive web designers, Weebly also includes customization features for those desiring a unique appearance. The ability to add/subtract pages and change content rapidly allows teachers a venue for digital presentation.
