I am attempting to create my own classroom website, although I have no idea what I’m doing! I’m hoping some of you have some tips for me or would be willing to post a link to your own so I could see how you set it up. I like easy to use websites(organized) but I also love sparkly things in it! 🙂
I am using google sites because my district uses EVERYTHING google, including chromebooks…which suck.
I want a tab for each of my classes (concert choir/treble choir/6th gr. general/7/8th gr. general), I want some sort of calendar for upcoming events, a place for student learning events, and I’m hoping I will be able to add in the future if I come up with anything else. 🙂
Within my choir tabs I would like to be able to upload(after I learn how) parts and accompaniments for my students to practice. As well as assignments for my general music classes.
Thanks in advance!
Weebly is extremely user friendly and it’s free! Your address is YourName.weebly.com They charge more if you wanna upload docs or media files – last I used it the price was $50 / year. Good luck.
I have tried out Weebly and think it is really nice as well. Another alternative is YOLA, which I’ve used to create a few educational websites for an afterschool program as well as an orchestral outreach website. You can check out my current website at harmonystockton.org, which is the one I made through YOLA. The website does have some limitations, but it does have some rather nice looking templates to help you get started. You upload all the pictures you want to utilize into a YOLA gallery and then just input them wherever you want.
To make separate classroom pages, just make different pages with the + button and then click the box to allow them to show up on the top row. The trick to making web pages look a little better is to utilize the columns widget to allow you to put text and pictures side by side or text and other text side by side. I have little to no website building experience, but Weebly and YOLA were both nice ways of creating something that gets the job done. Good luck!
