Some websites are very basic and do nothing more than provide information. They may be slick and attractive, but essentially they do nothing more than present information to the user.
However, when you get a website designed for your school, you will realise that they can do so much more. A good website designer will incorporate tools that help teachers and students in many ways.
Make use of a VLE
A school website that incorporates a virtual learning environment (VLE), such as those designed by school web development agencies like CSI Media, can become a useful tool for teachers, students and parents.
A VLE is a central system incorporated into your website where information can be added, seen and shared among the community. They help to improve the classroom experience, and they take the website beyond a simple brochure site and convert it into a tool with multiple benefits for the entire school community.

Start thinking about how you can change your website for the better today for the benefit of teachers, parents and students.
