We would like to clarify the use of website builder applications for Unit R085: Creating a multipage website of the Cambridge Nationals in Creative iMedia qualification.
When creating websites for Unit R085, we recommend that students do not use online site builders such as WIX, Weebly, WordPress and Google Sites, for the following reasons:
We appreciate that access to web authoring software is more difficult for students working at home. Therefore it is not disallowed for students to use online site builders to create their website, but students, teachers and internal assessors must consider the following issues:
The use of online site builders wouldn't constrain the opportunity for students to achieve MB3 for LO1, LO2 or LO4.
Please note, this guidance does not apply to installed WYSIWYG editors, such as Serif WebPlus, Adobe Dreamweaver, Microsoft Expression Web and Ambiera RocketCake, which would not limit students’ potential level of achievement in LO3.
If you have any queries, please call our Customer Support Centre on 01223 553998 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
