Have you wished you could have your own class or personal website, but thought you just didn't have the technical expertise to build it? This tool is here to help! Learn in just three minutes how to use Adobe Spark to create a website on your Chromebook. Spark allows you to create several types of digital media, and what they call “web stories” is essentially a type of website. If you're not on a Chromebook, you can also use this tool on your web browser.
Watch Monica as she creates her own website in just a couple minutes. You'll quickly see it's much easier than you think to set up your own site. Before you know it you'll even be comfortable enough letting your students create their own pages to share.
