Welcome to the companion website for the Weebly for Education Worshop. :)
Thank you for checking in.
Please use the information on this website to help you get started with your own. For suggestions, questions, and comments, please post on the Blog Page.
So, why should you choose Weebly for Education to build classroom websites and student blogs? Well, there are several very good reasons why Weebly websites are great for educational use. Firstly, they are free, and that is always a plus for educators. Secondly, Weebly does not place ads on your website like some other website creators do. Ads are distracting for adults, and often misleading for children. Lastly, Weebly allows you free domain hosting. So, if you already own a website address, or you decide to purchase from a domain site, you can use it for no extra cost. Again, this is not often a free service with other website providers.
To begin creating your website, you need to create an account. This is as simple as providing Weebly with a username, password and email address. Next, you accept the terms or service, click sign up, fill in the captcha, and you are ready to go. The next screen starts a wizard that asks for your name, school name, district and country, but if you want to skip that step for now, you can. When you are done with that screen you get the choice to set up a class, or create a website. So, let's create that website!
