You might want to look into Neocities (https://neocities.org/), it's a free web site hosting service without any ads that lets you upload HTML, CSS, and images in the browser. The sites will be on the neocities.org subdomain.
The students won't have to mess with a separate upload client and it has a modern friendly looking interface.

SDF.ORG offers teachers and students accounts - Allows staff, volunteer or adjunct at an accredited college or K-12 to self-manage a virtual UNIX classroom. A prospective instructor should provide SDF with details regarding their class (such as a syllabus or lesson plan). Students create their own accounts and are then validated by the instructor. The ATutor CMS is also available for classes. Further details are available in the FAQ.

Subject: [CODE4LIB] looking for free hosting for html code
Thank you to everyone for pointing me to free HTML editors.
I've been using this one successfully:
on my Mac at work running OS 10.5.8.
I plan to teach coding to my 6th and 12th grade students next school year and our lab has a mixture of old (2008) and new Macs (2015) so I want to make all the Macs functional for writing code in an editor.
My next question is this:
I am familiar with free Web creation and hosting sites like Weebly, Wix, Google sites, Wikispaces, WordPress, and Blogger, but do you know of any free hosting sites that will allow you to plug in your own code. i.e. host your own html files?
I had my students create wikis and blogs this year as a place for them to put their projects and writing.
I linked to all my students' work from my own blog:
and you will see if you click on one of them, for example this one:
from my blog, I can link to all of my students' work.
For next year, I want my students to create original sites for their original content that I can link to from a single location, e.g. a blog I create.
If all students are creating files with code with no place to host their files, then I wouldn't be able to do this.
So I am looking for a site that will host html files for free.
I hope this is clear.
Many thanks for your input!
