Bitly is a useful website, where website URL's can be shortened and renamed for simple, easy access.

Below I have provided a step-by-step guide to show how fast and simple it is to use in practice.



STEP 1Choose the web URL that you wish to be shortened:

STEP 2Copy and Paste the chosen URL into the shortening bar on the bitly site (https://bitly.com/):

STEP 3Click 'Shorten' and a shorter URL should be provided. However, if you sign up to Bitly, you will be given the opportunity to 'Customize':

STEP 4
Simply enter in a relevant word to customise the URL. (This is useful, as it makes communicating a long URL to children much easier, and using keywords associated to the specific theme/topic being taught can make it relevant and more practically, easier to find and identify!):
