ePortfolio Support Site 2014

Weebly - 76.8%

A limited version of Weebly is available as a 'free' web-hosting service that features drag-and-drop website and blog builders. Privacy controls and teacher management controls are available using the ‘Weebly for Education’ service. However, to make full use of this otherwise excellent service you actually have to PAY (the service markets itself strongly as being free, but it's not really true considering how much worse the free version is than the full-featured one).
