Cool Tools Episode 25 Screencast: Google Sites

Google Sites is yet another free online tool offered by Google. Google Sites was created for online team collaboration and allows for easy attachment and incorporation of documents, calendars, videos, and gadgets. Touted as a website tool, this application is a combination of wiki, blog, and website technology, without the html and much more intuitive. Customize and share your site with a selected audience or the world.

This screencast demonstrates how easy it is to create a site. Features highlighted include editing, navigation, and appearance.

Great job Jennifer. Your presentation was very clear and easy to follow. I'm quite excited to give this a try! You are right that this would be very useful in educational settings, especially for group work.

Good demo of some of the features of this tool. It certainly looks easy to use and I can see how it could complement the Google Docs tool that I explored, as this provides blog and wiki like elements that are different ways to collaborate. Thanks.

I like how you reaffirm that features can be changed later on. This is a calming attribute, and very handy to know when you are new to something.

Very clear presentation. I liked when the page turned like a cube! I am just learning all the Google features and apps and this one looks very easy to use, I can tell I will probably use it in the future.

Thanks for teaching us about this tool. I guess Google's not just about search anymore. Tools like this are great because they are helping to level the playing field. I like your statement, "No HTML required."
