Newsletters are great communicative tools which you can use with your students for a variety of educational purposes. There are now several web tools which makes the process of newsletter making a simple matter of choosing a template, filling in content, adjusting elements and sharing the finished product. Below are two very good examples of web tools we recommend for teachers keen on designing educational newsletters for their classes.
The popular Lucidpress has this excellent web-based tool that enables you to create beautiful newsletters using a wide variety of professionally designed templates.The process is very simple: select a template for your newsletter from the collection there, use the editor to customize it and fill it with your content. You can import content from third party tools such as Google Doc, add videos from YouTube, and insert images from social media websites. When your newsletter is ready, you can share it via different options such as traditional printing, embed link and many more. ‘Lucidpress lets you share with an unlimited number of collaborators, and makes sure you can always revoke or revise editing permissions. You can also use chat or video chat right in the editor.’
