I have been pondering more on my colleague’s request for a site which students can use to create an e-zine. I wondered if googlesites might work for his project.
I created a new account using my school email address. This can be used by teachers who can then create a new site. I would also show students how to login and create a new account if they wish.
I would then introduce students to googlesites and show them how to use the template and widgets to create an e-zine. I created a digest e-zine for Librarians which I hope is a good example for them to follow in creating online content and in following a site map. Interested? Check it out here
I will forward the Larrydigest to my colleague and see if it is the right look
