Weebly...A Classroom Website Video Tutorial

A huge thanks to Michele from Multiage Moments for inspiring me to take the plunge and start a website and blog specifically for my students. 

She has a post that shares about her experience having her students blog and she also gives a few sites you can use to build your site and blog. You can check that out here.

I decided to go with Weebly for Education. 

I chose Weebly mainly because our technology teacher uses it with our middle school students (so I know it must be easy!), but also because it was free and it allowed me to have a site and a blog together rather than being geared towards every student having their own blog (which is not what I wanted to do).  

Here is a very quick and very basic tutorial for setting up a website and blog through Weebly for Education. Please excuse my kids screaming playing in the background. Let me know how the video comes out. It was quite a fiasco trying to get rid of the blurriness factor and I'm still not 100% sure it worked. Thanks in advance!

  1. Jessica,
    I've used Weebly for my classroom site for the past two years and I love it! It is FREE and it is pretty easy to use. Once you've made it through a year, you can use layouts you've saved so you don't have to reinvent everything each year. Since I'm moving from second to first this year, I wanted to mix things up (and create more work for myself), but I can still basically use the same information. You can take a look:
