Creating e-portfolios using Weebly for Education



Creating a website has never been so easy!

Weebly for Education is a fantastic resource for educators who want to create a class website or for students who want to display their course work on-line.

The easy-to-use drag and drop interface allows users to create professional looking websites with the many available features.  These include:

- stable, reliable website hosting
- dozens of designer templates to choose from
- easy to use blogging option
- lots of available multimedia such as video, audio, images, maps, etc
- an HTML option that allows for even more features to be added or customized

The best feature of Weebly for Education however, is the teacher-controlled working environment for students.  Not only can teachers bulk create up to 40 free accounts, but public access to these accounts can be directly managed by the teacher.  In addition, teachers, parents and students can be confident that all on-line activity is safely monitored on a regular basis.  


Sample Classroom Activity:

Creating a website is a great way for students to display their work to a larger audience.  The ease of on-line access to student work offers many advantages.  For instance, parents can be more involved in the learning process as they can view their child's work on a more regular basis.  

This year, my students used Weebly for Education to create an e-portfolio of their English course work.  To view some examples of my students work as well as my class website, click on the hyperlinks below.
