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