Create Webpages for Announcements, Assignments,
and Digital Portfolios

Tackk is a free service that you can use to quickly create simple webpages. Using Tackk you can create a page to announce an important event, to advertise an event, or to show off your best digital works. I initially tried the service a couple of years ago and I revisited it today after receiving an email about their new education section. The education section of Tackk includes examples and ideas for using the service in your classroom. For example, Stephanie Shoban (@shoban) uses Tackk to present #EdTech concepts and tools to her district.
To create a Tackk page you do not need to register for an account, but unregistered Tackk pages expire after seven days. If you register for the service your Tackk pages stay up indefinitely. I registered for the service before creating my first Tackk page. Creating my Tackk was a simple matter of uploading an image then adding text in the customizable fields above and below my image. Tackk pages can accommodate videos, audio files, and maps.
Tackk could be a good tool for students to use to quickly create a page to show off some of their digital photography, video creation projects, or audio files.
