Not a Programmer? Use Google Sites
Problem: I want to have a website so my students can access classroom content
anytime, anywhere, but I don’t have time to learn programming or funding for software.
Here’s a solution: Google Sites provides teachers with an easy way to build their own
classroom website. Google Sites does not require any programming language, as it is built
with a WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) editor. You will be able to easily integrate
other Google Apps (Docs, Calendar, Maps, etc.) and bring in other embedded content from
As the site creator, you can choose to collaborate with your students on your classroom
site or simply choose to give them viewing rights only. Either way, you will be able to easily
upload classroom content to extend student learning beyond the walls of your building.

educators ( edutraining.googleapps.com).
