    Software to create web pages for students

    My DT / IT Teacher has asked me to set some machines up by the end of the year to enable students to be able to create 'interesting' web pages. I think this must be GCSE related? They suggested "Coffee Cup" but I see from another thread I started that the thoughts are that 'free for education' doesn't exactly mean free.

    What are other schools using / can recommend?

    We use dreamweaver. I know some schools use Serif Web Plus apparently its easy to use.

    We have both Dreamweaver and serif. Our IT teachers are preparing to use serif soon. From what I have seen, serif is the way to go! It is incredibly easy to create good looking sites.

    We use MatchWare Mediator as it's DiDA-certified (with exportable e-portfolios and the like) and quite cheap - only 600/year for 3 years for us.

    We also use that, but having stability issues more recently. They have not developed this in 5 years so are going to move away from it.

    Can't say we've noticed anything on the latest version. What will you be moving to?

    Thanks for the replies folks. Is there a relevant guide set down anywhere for the recommended way to set this coursework up?

    I'm guessing that to achieve the work it's going to have to live somewhere and then how is it accessed?
