Using Google Sites for Classes

By Dan Kasper

I created a Google Site for one of my hybrid courses, and I’ve found that the format works pretty well.  I don’t have experience with other wikis, but I find this particularly useful because a) you can embed youtube videos very easily into the web page and b) you can embed Google Docs and Google Calendar in there as well.  You can view the content, but you will not be able to view the Google Calendar on the first page because I would have to authorize you to do this. That is one of the nice features – I can specifically authorize some content, and make other content available without signing in.

It’s definitely not perfect, but I find that it’s very easy for the students to navigate once they get the hang of it.  The link is below (keep in mind it’s a work in progress):
