More than a decade in the past Weebly was one in all the first DIY web site builders that beneficial to lecturers. I helped numerous lecturers and their college students create classroom web sites with Weebly for Education. This morning I bought the news by way of e-mail that Weebly (now owned by Square) has determined to shutter Weebly for Education in 2022. This will occur on August 1, 2022. If you are utilizing Weebly for Education proper now, you might have loads of time to plan for what you will use as a alternative (I like to recommend Edublogs or Google Sites).
Weebly for Education hasn’t had any updates in just a few years so it is not shocking that it’s being closed down. I at all times appreciated the service and located it to be a great way for lecturers to construct their very own web sites. More importantly, it offered a great way for college students to create their very own web sites that lecturers might actively monitor. But all good issues come to an finish. Thanks for the good service for all the years, Weebly for Education.
Now that Weebly for Education is closing and Google has formally excluded Blogger from Google Workspace for Education (for these beneath 18), the solely good running a blog possibility for college students that I can advocate now’s Edublogs until you wish to go the route of self-hosting. And should you had been utilizing Weebly for Education for digital portfolios I’d advocate looking at Google Sites, Spaces, or Seesaw.
