Website for Instruction

One of my final assignments for my university class was setting up an instructional website. I toyed with the idea of creating a brand new site “from scratch,” but then I realized that there’s no reason to try to reinvent the wheel: rather, just use tools already available to me.

With that in mind, I decided to use webs.com. Perhaps you recall geocities.com from Yahoo? Well, webs.com offers free web space with options to upgrade to a pay site.

After registering on the site, users have the option of selecting from templates or using their own html code. There are several free, useful apps such as calendar and store to enhance websites, which eliminate the need for users to develop their own.

After developing the content (text, images), it was quite easy to use the templates and site up the site. My instructional site consists of internal and external links:

  • Home
  • Registration
  • Calendar
  • Discussions
  • Resources
  • Assignments
  • Moodle
  • Wiki Site
  • Database Intro
  • Blog
  • About the Instructor
  • Contact

Which free website services have you used? Webs.com? Others? How did they work out for you?

Let’s share ideas!
