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 Wix.com 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.

Kafafa - Free Website Builder and Host

There is no shortage of companies offering free website builders and hosting on the Internet. Kafafa is one such company that I recently came across. Kafafa offers a wide array of ad-free templates that you can use to build your free website. Once you've selected a template, editing the content of your website is easy to do. To edit the text appearing on your site's pages simply select the text box and start typing. To add or edit other elements of your site's pages just click edit and add images, videos, and hyperlinked text using the simple editor. If you can send an email, you can create a website with Kafafa.

Applications for Education
If you've been considering building a website to complement your classroom instruction, Kafafa is an option that you might want to consider. One advantage of Kafafa over some other free website building and hosting services is that Kafafa doesn't insert any advertising into your site.
