Expanding the horizon of its business model, Weebly, the free website maker, is trying to expand its education service. The company is trying to popularize the Weebly for Education service, a dedicated website feature for schools and students.
What is Weebly for Education?
Weebly for Education is a social project by Weebly.com. It aims to provide a comprehensive platform for schools, students and parents to interact online. Some of the key features of this service are:
- Develop a classroom website or blog as an online interaction platform
- Create and manage user accounts in bulk
- Add content to the webpages through multiple users, such as students can submit homework online
- Manage student accounts through a single administrator account
- Create accounts for parents to keep them updated about their ward’s performance
Customizing its easy web editor for education purposes, Weebly has stripped all the ecommerce features. Also, the administrator account has been given the right to set a content type as public or private.
Weebly for Education is a part of the premium services offered by the company. Schools can contact the website administrators to set up an account for them. The service is available free-of-cost for a period of 30 days. According to experts, this service has great potential to evolve into a successful business model. Such an innovative business model and user-friendly platform has earned Weebly second place in the free website maker comparison chart.
