Google Sites? What is this? (Katie Kengla) 


If you are looking to create a website, look no further! Google Sites is a free and easy tool for people to use! You can access this program through MyASU by clicking on the My Sites tab on the left side. Click create and you can get started! 


Google Sites is an easy-to-use online technology that people can use to create websites. There are templates that have been designed and all the creator has to do is fill in their personal information, or there are blank templates for the more creative minds that allow the website builder to make their site look however they would like. Google sites can be a collaborative tool, where multiple people are able to upload files to the site or edit the site. Teachers can use this technology to create a classroom website, or to create a website for their students to visit and use as an interactive classroom tool. This technology is accessable to any computer with internet access!


This is our sample site (Sarah Biro)
