Join Jess Stratton for an in-depth discussion in this video What are the uses for Google Sites?, part of Google Sites Essential Training.
Google Sites is a fantastic way for getting a website quickly and efficiently, even if you know nothing about web development or actual coding. Here are some ideas or reasons why you would want to use Google Sites. This is a template screen and of course, we haven't gone over it yet, so no worries if it looks foreign to you. I just want to talk about some uses for Google Sites. For a business site, you can do project tracking between your office teammates, and you can have a company wide intranet. The neat thing is that you can even set the permissions so that only people in your company can see the site, or even know that it exists.
For teachers, you can have a training or a classroom site to let parents know what you're doing. You can also have a restaurant site if you're a business owner to post menus. And you can set your site available to the public, so that anybody can access it through the URL in a browser. You can even use it for personal use. For example, you can have a neighborhood page, or a hobby club, such as a reading or hiking group. And you can post a calendar for when all your outings and excursions are planned.
You can have a personal wedding site or a travel blog, or even post a site for a town soccer league. So, over the course, while I'm going over how to use Google Sites, be thinking of ways that you can use Google Sites in your life.
