Apps for Education account

With my free account on Weebly I have the option to add all kinds of cool apps (calendar, table, countdown, ...). I would also like this apps to my pro education accounts. Is it not strange that it can with a free account, but not with a pro account for which you pay?

Education Accounts should have access to Apps

Apps are not available with the education accounts. Free accounts have access to apps but Education accounts don't?

 

 

Copy Site Function for Student Sites

Status: New Idea

Currently, the copy site function is only available for Weebly Pro accounts and not an option for Weebly Campus Edition Student Sites.  From a school and classroom management standpoint, having the ability to create a template or customized site layout is possible one site at a time.  Being able to copy a student site would allow a teacher, administrator or teacher create a customized website layout and copy it for an entire class or school.  This could be very helpful if you wanted to use Weebly as a digital portfolio platform.  

Weebly for Education should work on tablets

Currently, there is no way for students to access/create/update weebly sites from a mobile device such as an iPad, even on the app. I think it's crucial to include this population of students, since many students that have technology won't have access to something other than a tablet.

FIRST NAME ONLY option for student privacy in blog comments

To protect the identity of students in schools, I'd like to see that the blog comment feature allows for teachers the option to ask for first names only when they comment to blog posts.  Right now, the default form implies students (or parents) should write their first and last names, and that worries me as a teacher of tweens. I am beginning a student-led blog project for my science classes and caught this problem through trial and error. I promised student privacy, so that means the comments stay off until this is provided.

 

 

HTTPS for education

We use weebly for education and the staff love the ease of use and professional webpages that are produced. 

We also have a learning management system (Canvas) that doesn't embed  Weebly because it is not https therefore sending students off to the another site and we know that the more clicks the students do the less likely the are to reach the site. 

Can weebly for education have https?

Can weebly work with Canvas to make it an LTI tool??

I'd really love to be able to give my instructors the ability to add functionality from the App Center under our Weebly Campus Edition license.

Transfer student website accounts

I would love to have the ability to transfer student websites to another teacher account. We start creating website portfolios in 4th grade and now the 5th grade teachers would like to use Weebly as well. It would be nice if they could edit their same site. Unfortunately I have to delete them to make room for my new class each year. 

Using the weebly app for student accounts

Hello, it would be awesome if my students could access their student accounts on the weebly app. Our school has a 1:1 iPad program, and even when they try to log into students.weebly.com on the Safari app, it will take them to a page that says to use the Weebly app, thus rendering the app useless for them, and also their blogs less accessible.

 

Thanks

Referral links to display in posts

Weebly for Educators used to offer the addition of 10 student accounts for the referral of another educator.  I'd love to see this return. I am a Graduate Education instructor and teach classes using Weebly.  My students are either pre-service or current teachers who love your platform.  Just last night a student said "I just did in 15 minutes what I've been trying to figure out for months on Google Sites."  

I could certainly pass business your way.

I am a system admin for a school district in northern California and last year received many notices that resources on weebly's domain are now classified as Adult and therefore blocked by our content filter. Our best fix is to allow the URL for a set duration however this is not a sustainable practice or security wise solution to create rules that circumvent what our content filter is designed to do. I image sitting in front of our board of education and getting asked about our security measures and following up with but, but, but when asked do I routinely allow access to sites labeled as Adult. It seems that the problem is at the source, not the destination. As a big ask, and I am sure it would benefit many others - schools, education related organizations and some non-profits, can Weebly create a sub domain or reserved web space for sites that are education in nature that would separate them from other areas of weebly.com that have been branded as Adult? I realize this is a very large thing to ask, and I see that you have now have a space set up for teachers and students to create web sites in, perhaps this could be something in your future planning?

Data Retrival via Login

I run a website for my students and I would like for them to be able to see their test scores through the website. I would like to enter them in a database and then allow them to login in with a password or both a username and password so that they can see what they got.

Have Membership feature on Education Pro Users as well

I'm a Pro Weebly user and I have an idea if Pro users alike to have the same membership feature like education Pro account holders. See the link how beneficial it is: "https://hc.weebly.com/hc/en-us/articles/203859386-Membership-Limiting-Page-Visibility-to-Members

Collaborative Learning Space for Students to Edit (No student email account required)

It would be fantastic if Weebly could release a version where teachers can enable students from their list to become editors of a desired site/page. If students have a school email account it wouldn't be a problem, however most school students in Australia (primary) would simply only have their Weebly username.

 

Students would ultimately be able work collaboratively and take learning outside of the traditional learning hours of 9am-3pm.

Weebly Education Accounts (ADMINISTRATIVE ACCESS, LIVE CHAT, LOGIN ACCOUNT NAMES, ARCHIVES)

Weebly Education Accounts (ADMINISTRATIVE ACCESS, LIVE CHAT, LOGIN ACCOUNT NAMES, ARCHIVES)

 

1. Provide nuanced, varying levels of administrative access.

 

2. Include "live chat" link ON Weebly Education sites

 

3. Allow for overriding auto-generated account name, so students do not have to remember cryptic login names.

 

4. Create an archival repository of disabled sites which do not factor into the number of paid accounts. Dormant account could be kept in the system for a limited amount of time. This way, K-6 students, who are typically under the terms of service age of 13, could reinstate and migrate to a personal account a year after they graduate.

 

5. Alphabetize the drop down list of students in a class so they do not have to search up and down for their name.
