With Google Sites, you can quickly create a website to gather a variety of information in one place – including videos, calendars, presentations, attachments, and text – and easily share it for viewing with your class, course or the entire college.
Creating a web page using Google Sites is as simple as writing a document, and you can easily embed Google Docs, Slides and YouTube videos to develop interactive websites.
You can access the new Google Sites by logging into Google Sites and then select “Create”.
To help you get started we’ve created a series of short Google Sites training videos.
