Google Sites 101

Need a free, simple class website?

Google Sites is probably worth a look. In a few minutes, you can build your site and have it live to the world.

Neat features include a file cabinet system, where you can upload, organize and store documents like parent permission forms, your class syllabus, etc.

There are several templates from which to choose, including this neat classroom template.

My only reservation is the long, awkward url Google will attach to your site. You can, however, direct your Google Site to a custom domain, if you want to put down the ten to twenty bucks a year.

Lots of plug-in gadgets, and even an ability to edit html, make Google Sites another great, free product from the search giant.
