While many non-technical users are flocking to Google Sites to create free, easy to update websites, I recently found another option. Like Google, Yola provides free web hosting and a powerful site builder, but also offers access to over one hundred customizable templates, 1 GB of storage, basic blogging functionality, and integration with many popular web services from Google, Flickr, and Youtube. What’s more, I have found the Yola website builder easier to use and much more intuitive than what Google offers.

Yola also allows users to register or use an existing domain name if they do not want to have a URL.

It will be interesting to see if students and teachers adopt Yola as a means to create rich new media projects.
