WixED Teaches You How to Build a Website...on Wix

Wix is a popular DIY website creation tool. They claim to have more than 63 million registered users (source: CrunchBase). To help those 63 million users and anyone else who wants to build a website, last month Wix launched WixEd.

WixEd is a free online course all about building and maintain a website through Wix. The course has three sections, but first section is the only section teachers will need. The other two sections are about ecommerce and business development through websites. Each section of the course is comprised of a series of short videos followed by "homework" assignments.

Applications for Education
WixEd is clearly focused on business customers, but some teachers may find it helpful as they try to create classroom websites.

Free Website Builder Wix Goes HTML5, iPad Users Rejoice!

Wix is a free service for creating and hosting beautiful websites. There is just one problem, it's Flash-based which means the sites aren't viewable on iPads. Thanks to a Tweet by Adam Bellow, I learned that problem is soon to disappear. According to a blog post last Friday, Wix is moving to HTML5. That means that sites created in Wix will now be visible on all devices.

The video below provides a short demonstration of some of the power of HTML5 in Wix.

Applications for Education
Wix has always offered great templates for creating websites. Now that Wix supports HTML5 teachers can build course websites that can be viewed on iPads, laptops, and Android devices.
