Google Sites is a tool that allows students and teachers to create custom web pages with their own content. Google Sites also has the ability to embedded media from many other Google services, including Picasa Web Albums, YouTube videos, and Google Docs. A site can be created for a class, a school, or any other group that needs to quickly share information and ideas—even a team or club. The easy-to-use editor makes it possible to build a site in minutes, create templates for others to use, collaborate with others and create different pages such as announcements, dashboards, file cabinets, or lists. Google Sites also offers control over who has access to each site; share with everyone, or only specific individuals.
