Create A Web Page With Tackk

Tackk logoAn ever-expanding number of services want to make it easy to create a web presence even if you don’t have any knowledge of HTML. The best tool varies depending on your exact purpose, but Tackk is a nice option for creating single page websites through a few clicks. There are two ways to get started with Tackk. If you only need your page to be active for one week, you can create and publish a fully functional Tackk without registering, though it will be deleted after seven days. If you would prefer to have a permanent Tackk, you can register for free using either your email address or your existing Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Google, or Edmodo account.

Creating a Tackk starts with choosing a theme. There are thirteen different themes that you can start with, ranging from a style for announcements to one for class assignments to a blank slate option if you want to have maximum control over the look and feel of your page. Regardless of which theme you select, you will be able to reorder content on your page by clicking on the arrows on each individual box on the Tackk and you can add new content boxes by clicking on the desired icon at the bottom of the last content box. The types of content that can be added to your page include text, images, audio, video, maps, or a form. It is also possible to add an integrated payment option if you are using your page to sell products, an RSVP option, or embedded media from other sites such as Slideshare. And you can customize the appearance of your page by changing the color, fonts, or patterns used on the site.

Tackk is a nice option for several reasons. First, it allows quite a bit of customization in terms of both look and functionality. For example, in addition to the types of content listed above, Tackk also allows users to decide whether to allow comments and to choose the URL for the site. Beyond this, users also have the option to make their Tackk private, so that only those with the URL can see it, or even to password protect it for further security. Finally, Tackk has some very nice integrations that make pulling media such as videos, images and audio into the pages very straightforward. All of these features make it a nice option for teachers to use in their classrooms. If you have been looking for a simple tool for creating single page websites, Tackk is worth a try. You can see it in action in the video below.
