What is Google Sites?

Google Sites is part of the Google Apps suite and is an easy to use, user friendly, free online wiki and web page creation tool. Easily design, and edit your own web page and then share it with anyone you want.

You can pick out a theme, choose a color scheme, and upload any photos you want. You can also easily add files from your Google Drive and videos from YouTube.

Google Sites is an extremely easy and convenient way to make a site on something you find interesting or to create an electronic portfolio for coursework.

**It is important to note that Google has created a New Google Sites. Currently the Classic sites is still what opens when you log in, but we recommend that you create any site in New Google Sites. See our tutorial on Accessing Google Sites for detailed instructions.
