Google Sites

What are Google Sites?

Google Sites is an easy to use web site creation tool.  No HTML required.  You can work with others or alone to create a Google Site.  Google Sites allow you to add file attachments and information from other Google applications (like Google Docs, Google Calendar, YouTube and Picasa), and new Google Forms content.  Creating a site is as easy as editing a document.  You decide who can modify or add pages to your site.  Whether it's just you, your team, or your whole organization. You can even publish Sites to the world. The Google Sites web application is accessible from any internet connected computer. 

Google offers a number of page types -- web page, announcements, file cabinet, dashboard and list -- to help you get started with your Google Sites pages.  Upload files and attachments.  Use the file cabinet to upload files up to 10MB in size. You can also insert videos, docs, spreadsheets, presentations, photo slide shows, and calendars directly onto your Google Sites pages.

To access or setup your Google Sites, open a web browser and navigate to the following URL:
