Have Fun Creating Your Own Website Without Coding
Grades 4 and 5 (4 weeks)
Duration : 55 mins/week
This short 4 weeks course teaches you to create your own website on weebly.com, a popular and free website builder that helps users build websites without coding.
This course is geared towards beginners and students with no coding knowledge.
This class covers all the basic principles needed to create an engaging website that offers a great user experience.
My hands-on expertise comes from building my own successful e-commerce websites.
We meet once a week for 55 min live lessons
Each student will be required to create a free account on weebly.com to get started. Please make sure this account is created by using a parent's email address.Once logged in we will start by understanding the overall layout of the Weebly platform and its various features. We will work on creating the basic settings for our new website.
We will learn about the concept of brand and brand colors which is very important for the overall look of our website.
We then move on to designing and creating our HOMEPAGE which is the most important page for any website. Students will learn how to design a homepage that welcomes the audience to their website, gives more information on what to do next, and allows them to explore your website in greater depth.
Next, we will work on other key pages of your website including the ABOUT US page, CONTACT page by implementing weebly forms, the BLOG page by also implementing the search and categories feature, create a NEWSLETTER subscription form, learning about its best placement, and finally we will learn how to create easy user flow within your internal pages.
Finally, we will learn how to convert your website into an e-commerce website in the future. We will create a well-designed product page, learn how to set up your payment options for checkout, set up automated emails to customers, and create a product listing page. To create a fully functional e-commerce website you will require to convert your website into a paid one. However, we can work on all of the above features while your website is still free.
It has been an amazing journey for me over the years, generating creative ideas and pouring my passion into my websites.
I hope to do the same for every student who takes this course.
Let's have fun while being creative.
