In Elmbrook, we just got access to the new Google Sites BETA.
I have been using Google Sites for student portfolios for the last 5 years. The navigation has always been cumbersome and not intuitive like the other Google Apps in the GAFE Suite. Well, that will no longer be the case.
The video below will show you how the new Sites is a ground up redesign in-line with the apps we know and love in the GAFE Suite. Students will be able to make new web sites that look great without getting lost in multiple clicks to do a simple task. (If you find any errors in the video, please let me know. I depend on my PLN to proofread sometimes.)
If you don't have access yet in your district, do what I did and contact your Google Administrator. A big thanks to our Google Admin Austin Nader for getting the turnaround done on this in less than a week!
Google will continue to update the BETA version so it may not have everything you want now, but it'll be coming for sure.
Now, if only they would update Blogger! So jealous of all those WordPress Sites.
