Two Good Ways to Create Simple and Focused Websites

Parts of this post originally appeared late last year in an issue  of my Practical Ed Tech weekly newsletter

I am often asked for recommendations for simple website builders that teachers and students can use to create small websites. The purpose isn’t to share everything they’ve done and have you grade it. Tools like Seesaw and Spaces are good for that. The purpose of these kinds of sites is to share photography, their resumes, videos they’ve made, or awards and references they’ve received.

Google Sites is fine for making simple sites, but the aesthetics still have a long way to go. Services like WordPress and Wix are great, but they have way more menus and options than what's needed for a quick and simple site. Fortunately, there are some good tools students can use to quickly create simple, good-looking websites to showcase their work and share a bit about themselves. Here are a couple that are worth trying. is an easy-to-use tool to quickly create good-looking, simple websites. I used to to create a little photography showcase site in less than ten minutes. It looks much better than anything I could have created with Google Sites or WordPress. Watch this short demo to see how you can create a portfolio site with

Adobe Express (formerly known as Adobe Spark) has a webpage creator that offers a fantastic way to create simple websites in which your students can include images, text, and videos. Consider having your students arrange their pages chronologically so that the top of the page shows their work at the beginning of the year and then as viewers scroll down they see your students' latest work. Click here for a video tutorial on how to use Adobe Express to create a simple website.

How to Create a Simple Website With Adobe Express

For that last five or so years Adobe Spark has been one of my top recommendations for creating simple, focused websites. This week Adobe rebranded Adobe Spark as Adobe Creative Cloud Express or Adobe Express for short. It still offers all of the same great tools for making videos, building simple websites, and creating graphics. And a few other handy tools have been added to the suite (I'll outline those in a separate post). 

To keep in line with the branding change of Adobe Spark to Adobe Express, I created this updated tutorial on how to create a simple website by using Adobe Express

Applications for Education
Creating a simple website with Adobe Express could be a good way for students to create digital displays of their photography, video productions, slideshows, or writing. Making one-page websites with Adobe Express is also a good way to publicize a school event like an upcoming theatre production or fundraiser event.

7 Interesting Features You Can Add to Google Sites

Last week Google sent out a notice reminding domain administrators that the end of the classic version of Google Sites is near. That prompted me to publish directions for transition from the classic version of Google Sites to the current version. I also shared a set of tutorials for building your first website with the current version of Google Sites. 

Once you've made the switch to the current version of Google Sites, you might want to go beyond the basics to add some interesting features to your site to make it a one-stop shop for all of your students' and parents' needs. Here are some things you can do to enhance your Google Site with additional features. 

Embed Posters Into Google Sites

Canva is my favorite tool for making all kinds of graphics including infographics and interactive posters. In the video below I demonstrate how to embed Canva posters into the pages of your Google Sites.

Add a News Section to Google Sites
If you want to make sure that visitors to your site see the latest updates and news first, use the method demonstrated in this video to include a "latest news" section in your website. 

Add Physics, Chemistry, and Math Simulations to Google Sites
PhET offers fantastic simulations for teaching math and science concepts. Those simulations can be embedded into your Google Site as is demonstrated in the following video. 

Add Padlet Walls to Google Sites
Padlet is one of the most versatile ed tech tools that I use. You can use Padlet to create backchannels, collaborative KWL charts, video and image galleries, and even create interactive maps. All Padlet walls can be embedded into Google Sites pages. 

Add an Art Gallery to Google Sites
Wakelet, like Padlet, is a versatile tool for making collections of links, images, videos, and more. You can use Wakelet in conjunction with Google Sites to create an online art gallery. 

Add an Image Carousel to Google Sites
Do you have a bunch of pictures from a school event that you'd like to share with people visiting your website made with Google Sites? If so, adding an image carousel to your Google Site is a simple and good-looking way to do that. 

Add Flipgrid Topics Into Google Sites
If you have a Flipgrid that you want to share with a wider audience without having to send out individual invitations, embedding that Flipgrid into your Google Site is a solution. In the video below I demonstrate how you can include Flipgrid topics in the pages of your Google Sites website.

How to Create Your First Google Sites & 5 Ways to Customize It

Summer is here (in the northern hemisphere) and after a break from school you might start thinking about next year and what you need to do to be ready for it. Many people have been asking me questions like, "what can I do to be ready in case we have to switch back to online teaching next year?" One of the things that you can do is spend some time learning more about the features of your school's learning management system (Google Classroom, Microsoft Teams, Schoology, Canvas). Another thing that I've been recommending is creating a website to organize handouts, resource links, videos, and more.

There are many free tools for building websites. Google Sites is one of the best options for teachers who have Google accounts (either school-issued or personal accounts). Here are some tutorials to get you started on the process of creating a great website with Google Sites.

How to Create Your First Website With Google Sites

There are lots of excellent tools for creating your first classroom website. I'm often asked which one is the best one to use. My usual advice is to try Google Sites if your school uses G Suite for Education. I make that recommendation because when you sign into Google Sites with your G Suite account you'll be able to add items from any part of your Google account to your Google Site. That means with just one click you can add documents, slides, pictures, calendars, and more to your Google Sites website. In the following video I demonstrate how to create the first pages of your first Google Sites website.

You can find more Google Sites tutorials right here on my YouTube channel.

3 Ways to Use Google Sites in School

1. Create a wiki. Invite students to collaborate on a Google Site. Put each student in charge of one page that he/she is responsible for updating. I used to do this with my U.S. History students when we studied the Roaring 20's. Each student had a page that he/she had to update with information about a cultural or political topic.

2. As a digital file cabinet: If you have documents like permission slips or lunch order forms that you want your students' parents to be able to easily download, consider adding a page to your site where those documents are displayed.

3. As a digital portfolio: Google Sites can be used by students to create digital portfolios featuring their best works and accomplishments. I would encourage high school students to develop a digital portfolio that they can share with university admissions officers. Teachers should also consider developing a digital portfolio of their best lesson plans, credentials, and references to include when they apply for teaching positions.

New to New Google Sites? 5 Features You Should Know How To Use

The new (current) version of Google Sites is easier for new users to start using. But with that ease of use comes fewer features and some "hidden" features that are often overlooked. If you're thinking about building a website with the new version of Google Sites, here are five features that you should know how to use.

Custom Header Images
Google provides plenty of stock images to use in your site's header, but to really add personality to your site you'll want to use own header image. You can upload an image from your computer or you can insert an image that you have stored in your Google Drive account. Follow these steps to upload your own header image:

  • Place cursor over the lower, left corner of the header field. 
  • When the "change image" button appears select "upload" from the drop-down menu. 
  • Upload image. Note that your image might be automatically re-sized or re-positioned to fit with your theme. 
  • To choose an image from your Google Drive select "select image" rather than "upload" from the "change image" menu. 

Custom Favicons
The favicon is the little image that appears in the browser tab when your site is open. You can change this image by selecting "edit favicon" from the little menu that appears just to the left of the "publish" button.

Public Search Settings
You might want your site to appear in Google Search results or you might not want it to appear in search results. If you don't want it to appear in Google Search results, you can make that specification in the "publish settings" menu that appears just to the right of the "publish" button.

Video from Google Drive
YouTube can be a great source of educational videos to include in your website. But if your school blocks YouTube or you have a video that you want to include in your site without first putting it on YouTube, you do have other options. One of those options is to insert a video from your Google Drive account. First upload your video to your Google Drive account then in your Google Site select "From Drive" in the "insert" menu on the righthand side of your screen.

3rd Party Embeds
The old or "classic" version of Google Sites was notoriously finicky about embedding content from third party websites. The new version of Google Sites includes much improved support for embedding content from third party services. There are two ways to add content from third party services. The first option is to just paste a link into the "embed" widget available in the "insert" menu. The second option is to paste an embed code into the "embed" widget available in the "insert" menu.

How to Use Weebly to Create a Website

Whenever I am asked for recommendation for a first step on the road to technology integration, I suggest creating a classroom blog or website. You can accomplish a lot of things by creating and maintaining a classroom website. You can use it to keep parents updated about what is happening in your classroom, share hand-outs, and use it as a place to showcase your students' best work. One of the services that I like to use for building websites is Weebly. In the the videos you can learn everything you need to know and more for getting started with Weebly.

Weebly Beginner's Guide (this video is an hour long).

How'd they do that? - A playlist of quick tips about Weebly.

Applications for Education
Weebly for Education includes all of the intuitive website-building and blogging tools found on Weebly plus features built specifically for education.

How to Create a Website With Weebly

This morning on Google+ Larry Ferlazzo shared a TechCrunch story about Weebly expanding. As I wrote in response to Larry's post, it is good to see Weebly is growing. I've introduced it to a lot of teachers over the years so it's nice to see that it doesn't appear to be going anywhere for a while. If you're looking for a good way to build a website to use with your students, Weebly is an excellent option.

The video below is an excellent tutorial to follow to create your own website with Weebly.

Silk - Collaboratively Create Digital Portfolios

Silk is a free service for creating webpages organized around a theme or topic. Silk is intended to be a place where you can share collections of materials as well as write text directly into your webpages. Your Silk dashboard provides a place to organize your materials into collections and subcollections. Your collections can include documents, videos, images, charts and graphs, and links to other sites. Take a look at a sample Silk site here.

You can create multiple sites within your free Silk account. Your Silk sites can be public or  private. Creating collections on your Silk site can become a collaborative activity by inviting others to be editors or administrators on a site.

Applications for Education
Silk could be a good tool for students to use to create digital portfolios. Teachers could use Silk to create digital collections of information to supplement or replace textbooks for their courses.

Weebly Gets a Makeover - Try the New Site Planner

The popular website creation and hosting service Weebly announced some significant changes today. Beginning today Weebly users will have a new site creator and editor interface (new users will see it right away, existing users may not see it for a few more days). The new interface puts the editing tools on the side of the page. More importantly the new editor will show you more elements and options on the screen compared to the old editor. This means that you won't have to dig around or guess where a particular element is. The new editor will also display a preview of the mobile version of your site so that you can see how it looks without having to go to your mobile device.

The Weebly editor now includes a site planner tool. The site planner allows you to see how elements of your website will fit together. Think of it as a visual tool for creating a a site map.

Applications for Education
The good news that comes along with all of the updates to Weebly is that it is still free for teachers and students. Weebly has long been one of my favorite tools for teachers and students to use to create websites. Weebly can be used to create digital portfolios and blogs in one place.

Unlike some other free website and blog platforms, Weebly doesn't insert advertising into your site. Weebly's customer support even for non-paying users is outstanding too.

Website on Steroids: Creating a Powerful Blog

This is a guest post from Dan Klumper.

The topic of using blogs in education is nothing new. One thing I have noticed over the years is that many teachers use blogs in basic ways, such as posting a question(s) and having the students respond/answer. This is good from time to time, but a blog can be so much more than that. A blog can by one of the most dynamic teaching tools a teacher could have. It can be a review tool, learning tool, creating tool, collaboration tool, a sharing tool or all of them. With this post, I want to give some useful tips and ideas that can be used to make a dynamic blog. So, let’s go.

  • The Silent Review: The silent review video is something I started this past year. This is a video that my students and I make together. As you will see in the video, it is such a simple way to review, but a very helpful one. The video can be posted on your blog for the students to access easily and watch leading up to the test. The attached video is a review over Greek Mythology. (be sure the students’ answers are the correct ones!)

  • WSG Live! My blog is called Water for Sixth Grade, so at the end of each unit, I have a WSG Live! review event. This review tool allows me to study with the students the night before the test. I am at my computer at my home, and they are on theirs at their homes. (How often can a student review with the teacher the night before?) For 30-45 minutes, I go online and with my blog, ask my students questions on my WSG Live! post. We discuss the material we have been studying together.  I take off comment moderation which allows the students to answer my questions and have their responses post immediately. This is a great way to review interactively.

  • Prezi Online collaboration: I am sure you are all familiar with Prezi. So let’s take Prezi and combined it with our blog. I posted a prezi on my blog that could be edited by anyone. I told my students that sometime over the next week, they were to add anything they know or learned about our topic (ancient Egypt). At the end of the week, we had a ton of things posted. The next step was to take what was added to the Prezi and organize it into topics such as “Nile River” or “Pyramids” or “Religioni.” This forced the students to do some thinking as to which category each piece of info went into.

  • Keep it Fresh: There is a multitude of tools that can be used through your blog. Create a comic on Pixton to help students learn/review in a more fun way. Have the students post a thought/comment on Wall-Wisher. Have the students create an imaginary conversation between them and someone of their choice about a topic. Post some online flashcards for them with flashcardmachine. Hold a debate on your blog, which allows everybody to have a voice, instead of just one kid getting called on. Share student work, post interesting videos. The possibilities are endless!

Keep in mind, you want your blog to be something that the students want to go to. So don’t “over blog” but try to keep new and useful/interesting things going. Start building momentum and remind/show the students how helpful it can be.  Soon, the students will “buy in” to your blog and jump on board. And when that happens, you shall have a dynamic blog.

My name is Dan Klumper and I live and teach in Brandon, SD. I have taught 6th grade social studies for the past six years. I am originally from Worthington, MN. I attended Augustana College in Sioux Falls, SD. I have a passion for technology in education because I believe it can make a huge impact on today’s students. Thank you.

47 Page Guide to Google Sites for Teachers

The rest of this week I will be running workshops on Google Docs and Google Sites with Kern Kelley and Alice Barr as a part of Google Apps Bootcamp NH. For the Google Docs section I will be using my guide to Google Drive and Docs for Teachers. For the Google Sites section I will be using a brand new guide to Google Sites for Teachers. Google Sites for Teachers was designed as a guide for new users of Google Sites. I have designs for expanding it to include more advanced features in the future. You can view the 47 page guide as embedded below.

I have stopped allowing downloads of this document. After seeing my documents downloaded and used for profit, I decided to stop giving away the downloads.

Scroll Kit - Build a Website from Scratch Without Coding

There a lot of free services that allow you to build webpages without coding (find 11 of them here), but those services limit your creativity by requiring you to use one of their predefined templates or themes. Scroll Kit gives you a completely blank canvas to build on.

When you sign into Scroll Kit for the first time you will see a brief tutorial on how to use the service. As you work through the tutorial, you can delete parts of the tutorial until you have a blank canvas. On your blank canvas you can draw, add text boxes, add images, add videos, and insert app scripts. You can build multiple layers into your Scroll Kit site. When you're ready to publish your pages you can publish on a Scroll Kit subdomain for free or redirect to a domain that you own.

Applications for Education
A word of warning before you use the site, currently one of Scroll Kit's sample pages contains a word that is definitely not appropriate for school. I sent them an email and suggested a change, we'll see what happens. If they take my advice Scroll Kit could be a good tool for students to use to quickly begin experimenting with elements of design.

Big update! Scroll Kit took my advice and changed the sample page that had the bad language on it. I love it when new companies are responsive to teachers. Scroll Kit is definitely a good tool that students can use to quickly experiment with elements of web design. The blank canvas gives students the freedom to make their pages as beautiful or as ugly they like.

Update again: Thanks to Mark's comment below I learned that Scroll Kit only changed one of the sample pages not all of them. Sorry :(

Weebly Adds Slick Themes and Templates

Last month Weebly launched a new iPad and iPhone app. Today, they released 25 new templates and themes. Teachers and students using Weebly to build websites still get all of the great free website creation tools they love plus new themes and templates to enjoy. Furthermore, you can now use multiple page templates within your site. TechCrunch has a nice run-down of all of the news from Weebly. Watch the video below for a short overview of the new Weebly themes and templates.

Applications for Education
Weebly for Education includes all of the intuitive website-building and blogging tools found on Weebly plus features built specifically for education. Weebly for Education offers bulk creation of student accounts (up to 40 for free) which teachers can manage and moderate. Students can create their own websites and blogs using the accounts that you create for them. Unlike a lot of free services in the website building market, Weebly does not place any advertising your website.

Create Webpages in Minutes With Pagefin

Pagefin is a free service for creating simple webpages without the need to register for an account. To create a webpage with Pagefin just click "create and share," enter the captcha code, and start designing your webpage. Pagefin does not offer any fancy template to widgets to add to your pages, just a blank slate to design on. You can add text boxes, images, and videos to your webpages. When you're happy with your page click on the share button to have a URL generated for your page. The share button will also provide you with an editing link (don't share that one).

Applications for Education
Pagefin could be a good tool for students to use to create and share a page of their best writings, video productions, or favorite images. Pagefin's blank slate approach allows you to add as many text boxes, images, and video elements as you like. Looking at it from that perspective, Pagefin could be a good platform to have students use to create online collages of media arranged around a research topic.

Create a Beautiful Website for Free With Zoho Sites

Last month I shared a list of 11 Free Tools for Creating Websites. Today, Zoho released a new website creation tool to bring that list up to twelve. Zoho Sites is a new addition Zoho's suite of services. Zoho Sites appears to be trying to address two frequently-noted shortcomings of Google Sites by offering visually impressive themes and by automatically making your sites mobile-friendly.

TechCrunch says that Google needs to watch out for Zoho Sites, but I don't think Google has too much to worry about because aside from the theme beauty and mobile readiness, creating a website on Zoho Sites is just like almost every other free website builder. To create a site on Zoho Sites you can sign-in using a Zoho account, Google account, or Facebook account. Once you've signed-in, select a theme and start arranging elements on your site by using the drag-and-drop menus. One of the nice elements that you might want to add to your site is the integrated blogging element. You can have a blog reside inside you site. In other words you can have the static content of a website combined with a section for chronologically organized blog posts. Like on any good website builder, you can preview your site before you publish it and you can edit it at any time.

The video below provides a short overview of Zoho Sites.

Applications for Education
If you're looking for a platform that your students can use to build visually-appealing digital portfolios, take a look at Zoho Sites. If your students already have Google accounts, signing into Zoho Sites won't require them to create a new user name and password.

If you're looking to build a new course website that is mobile friendly, Zoho Sites is worth giving a good look too.

11 Free Tools for Creating Websites and Simple Webpages

Last week I wrote about Codecademy's new programs for teaching basic HTML, CSS, and other fundamentals for building websites. But if you don't have the time or desire to build webpages from scratch  there are plenty of free online tools that will do the heavy lifting for you so that you can concentrate on just adding useful content to your course webpages. Here are eleven free services for creating websites and simple webpages.

Wix is a free service for creating and hosting beautiful websites. Wix recently announced that their templates and the websites you build with them are now available in HTML5. That means that sites created in Wix are visible on all devices including iPads. In the video below you can see some of the neat things you can do with Wix.

Whatfolio is a free service for creating online displays of your digital works.   Whatfolio is essentially a homepage to show off what you have created or what you can do. Whatfolio pages are highly customizable for a variety of purposes. When you create your Whatfolio pages you can choose from thirty templates. You'll find templates for photographers, designers, personal websites, business websites, student work samples, and many other showcase purposes. You can watch an overview of the Whatfolio creation process in the video below.

Weebly was one of the first website building tools that I played around with when I got started on my technology integration journey. It's a very intuitive and feature rich platform for creating a free website. For those reasons, it's always on my list of recommendations to teachers who want to build a classroom website. If you're looking for a tool for students to use to create websites of their own, Weebly for Education is a good resource. Weebly for Education includes all of the intuitive website-building and blogging tools found on Weebly plus features built specifically for education. Weebly for Education offers bulk creation of student accounts which teachers can manage and moderate. Students can create their own websites and blogs using the accounts that you create for them.

Webs is another service that I have first-hand experience with in a school setting because a couple of my colleagues have used it for their classes. Webs has all of the characteristics that you would expect to find in a free website platform. Websites built using Webs can include videos, calendars, polls, and a wide variety of third party widgets. Webs offers a wide variety templates and layouts to select from. For people with a higher level of comfort with technology, Webs might be a little too basic for your needs.

Yola is the tool that I used a few years ago to build websites for my department at school. Yola offers a great selection of templates and customizations. After setting up the basics of the site, my department handed it off to a student assistant who did a great job of updating it throughout the year. Yola provides good tutorials and forums for first time users. I also learned first-hand that their responses to help requests are very quick.

If you already have a Google Account, Google Sites is already available to you. Just select it from the menu of services that you're not using. Google offers a wide variety of templates that you can use and customize on your site. Should you decide at a later date that you want to add other contributors to your site, you can do so with just a couple of clicks in the sharing menu.

School Rack offers a free service for teachers to build and host their own classroom websites. Unlike other free website solutions that are targeted toward a general audience, School Rack has features designed specifically for teachers. For example, on your School Rack website you can post assignments with full descriptions, expectations, and deadlines. This is an integrated feature, not an add-on page that you have to create yourself. School Rack offers students and parents free accounts to communicate with teachers. Once your students and parents have activated their accounts, you can directly message individuals or send messages to groups that you have created.

Web Node is a simple way to build a website. The easy to use, drag and drop, interface makes it easy to change the look and feel of your website. For two reasons Web Node is a good tool for students to use to present and share their work with a wider audience. First, Web Node does not put any advertising on your website. And second, the user interface is intuitive enough for first-time users to navigate on their own. 

Smore is a service for quickly creating great-looking webpages. Smore markets itself as a service for creating online flyers, but it's a little bit more than that. To me "flyer" implies that you're creating a single-use PDF and posting it online. Smore's flyers are dynamic and changeable, they're not single-use PDFs. Your Smore flyers can include many types of media including videos. Deleting or adding elements to your Smore flyer is as simple as dragging and dropping them on or off your page. Watch the one minute video below for an overview of Smore in action.

A Cupcake Story from Smore on Vimeo.

Check This is a service for quickly building and publishing webpages. Check This falls somewhere between having nothing on the web and a blog. Check This isn't designed to replace your favorite blog or website creation platform, rather it is designed to fill the niche for people who desire to publish a simple announcement page. Without registering you can add text, images, and videos to your Check This page in a matter of seconds. And after you have published your page you can go back and edit it by using the unique edit link sent to the email address you provide in the step between creation and publishing.

In the video below I provide a short walk-through on creating a webpage with Check This.

Page O Rama is a free service for quickly creating stand alone webpages. Creating a webpage with Page O Rama is very simple. Just visit the Page O Rama homepage, select a web address, title your page, and start typing. Page O Rama offers a good selection of text editing tools including page breaks. If you want to, you can add images to your Page O Rama pages too. If you think your page is something that you're going to want to edit and update occasionally, you can enter your email address to create an administrative log-in.
