Designing a Class Website

Ok everyone! By January, I really want to have a classroom website where I can post learning pictures as well as homework and other things like the class newsletter that I end up sending home more than once to many families. How do I do this??

I use Teacher Web, although there is a fee for it.

I have heard that there is a free one called ClassJump.

There are two that I've used: www.weebly.com and www.googlepages.com. Both are free, very easy (no html required), and there aren't any ads either.

Also try EduBlogs.com.

I use Wordpress and host it on my own server: http://www.msyorksclass.com.

Use a wiki

Wikispaces.com lets teachers use the ad-free version at no cost. Google wikis on PT and you will find a ton of info. I love the ease of use and the freedom to upload everything from documents to video.

frontpage is great

I recommend using Microsoft Frontpage. It is extremely user-friendly. If you can use Microsoft Word then you can use Microsoft Frontpage. I use frontpage for my classroom webpage. I have full creative control which is one aspect I love about it.

Be Careful

Microsoft no longer produces Frontpage. I would be careful about purchasing a program they no longer make. That being said, I have frontpage. I bought it a few years ago. I used it to start web design. It is an easy program to use but makes "code heavy" web pages. I now use Dreamweaver.

Scholastic

I use and really like the scholastic one. It is free and VERY easy to use and keep up to date. The address parents use to find it isn't as easy to remember but it is very easy to keep up with.

www.schoolrack.com is free, and the website for classjump (free) is www.classjump.com

Let us know what you decide, we'd love to see the finished product!

Teacher Web

Teacherweb is very user friendly and easy to use. You do have to subscribe to use the service, but I have found it well worth the money. The site saves me time since the pages are already set up, and all I need to do is imput the information.

I use a site called Yola. It's completely free and so easy to use! You can upgrade at any time and get more features.
