I'm a teacher looking for a way for my students to learn about web-site building, but, I have to have a secure environment and be able to monitor what they put on their sites. Is SynthaSite what I'm looking for?

Hi

Thanks for your question. We are certainly targeting the educational sector and looking to add collaboration features to SynthaSite. Currently SynthaSite provides secure website hosting, but there is no way to link various accounts to each other. If you have any specific suggestions that would appeal to the educational sector, please email us on support@synthasite.com - your feedback will really help us to improve our product.

Many Thanks

Hi lharrisen

We think SynthaSite is a great way to teach your students about website building!

Sites built with SynthaSite are secure. We do not share your account details with anyone. You even have an option to password protect your whole site or part of it if you wish. As for monitoring what your students put on their sites - you could require them to give you access to their accounts so that you can review the content prior to publishing, or you could check their published sites directly. You would need to provide your class with guidelines on what they should publish and monitor this by reviewing their sites.

We would be interested to hear what other security requirements you have, because we are particularly interested in meeting the needs of educators. Perhaps a permission system or collaborative site building? These are options we are exploring for the future. We would like to see SynthaSite used in the classroom and if there is a feature or features that you need to make this possible we definitely want to hear from you.

My 2 cents as a Synthasite user...the building offers easy--->complex, the support team stands by your side all the way, other webmasters here are full of information and very giving. This would be an awesome site to offer for students from beginner to advanced.
