Administrators and teachers don’t need to become tech-wizards to make sure their schools’ web sites run as smoothly as possible. Placemark, a new product from Tom Snyder Productions, makes web sites simple to build and easy to manage.

Placemark aims to provide a less intimidating means of creating web content by taking away the need for complicated computer-speak (hypertext markup language, or HTML) and replacing it with pre-designed layouts and templates in a language that anyone can understand. One click of the mouse and the software’s ease of use becomes apparent: Teachers can add images to a site, post working links, and edit content with only basic computer skills.

For administrators, Placemark offers the ability to add or revoke user privileges, change passwords, monitor pages, and update sites.

Pricing varies according to the size of the school; for more information, contact a company sales representative.
