Design a Web Site using Weebly utilizes the free Web 2.0 tool www.weebly.com which allows students to create a web site or blog free. No download is required to use the product, making it easy for teachers who are not able to download software on classroom computers to still give their students a choice in learning.
In these lessons, students are provided with a quick tutorial, as well as links to other resources to help them with their designs. The tutorial is intended to help students get started with the program and then use the resources within the program to refine their creations.
There are three projects included with this lesson to allow the teacher and student a choice in how to demonstrate knowledge of Weebly. Use one, all three, or let students choose!
