Create free websites - SnackWebsites

Create free websites - SnackWebsites | technologies | Scoop.it
Create free websites, really easy! Free & easy to set up. Especially developed to work on all mobile devices. No ads.
John Dalziel's insight:

SnackWebsites Mobile Website Builder is a free to use online web service that lets users create mobile websites.
Today nearly every learner has a smartphone. And learners make full use of their smartphones by using the Internet on them.

This makes it very easy for learning providers, or individual practitioners, to quickly show their learners, their online files that are mobile-compatible.
This can be a great advantage for tutorials, distance learning etc.

Mobile sharing is also beneficial for learners that have portfolios online.
Creating online portfolios of work will not do them any good if the web service they use is not mobile-friendly.
When users start creating a website, they can select which category it falls in; covered categories include...
- personal,
- portfolio,
- community,
- blog,
- product,
- band,
- event,
...and lots more.
Users can also select a template from the various visually appealing options.
The site even gives users numerous extension options to customize the overall URL of the resulting website.
A possible addition to employability courses and/or for community courses e.g. websites for self-employed, community groups, sports clubs, the list goes on.

5 Ways to Use Google Sites in Teaching & Learning

Although this post refers to "Schools" it is a post from the USA so therefore has a different meaning than we would use in the UK.

 

I particularly like the use of the new page-level permissions options, allowing learners to only edit Google Sites pages that practitioners grant them access to.

 

The 5 ways are...

- As a wiki:

- As a digital portfolio;

- As a digital file cabinet;

- As a blog;

- As a website.

 

All skills learners need in the "real world" - potential for use in functional skills especially as learners & practitioners have 24/7 access. 

 

Google docs are also ideal for peer assessment and review.
