In this video, Jess Stratton gives you a very high-level overview of ways you can use Google sites, both personally and professionally.
- [Instructor] Google Sites is a fantastic way for getting up a website quickly and efficiently even if you know nothing about web development or actual coding. For a business site, you can do project tracking between your office teammates, or you could have a company-wide intranet. You can add any Google Docs, such as Sheets or even Charts, to your intranet. If you're using a work or school account, you can set the site viewability so that only people in your company or school can see the site or even know that it exists.
For a band or a baseball league or a non-profit company, you could put your fundraising events or game schedules on a Google Calendar and embed it onto the site for others to see. For teachers, you can have a training or a classroom site to let parents know what you're doing. And as Google Sites works with any Google account, it's free, and so you could even use it for personal use. For example, you could have a neighborhood page or hobby club, such as reading or hiking. And you can post a calendar for when all of your outings and excursions are planned.
You can have a personal wedding site or a travel blog. So over this course, while I'm going over how to use Google Sites, and I'm going to start from scratch and build this one that you're looking at right now, be thinking about ways that you can use Google Sites in your life.
