New Google Site Basics

Thursday, October 10, 2019:  11:00 AM - 12:30 PM


Google Sites is more than a website. It is a very powerful collaborative tool— a way to put all your Google Docs, Google Calendars and Google Forms in one place and share it with your team. You can edit a Google Site together with someone else in real-time, and see each other’s changes live. You can publish the site for everyone to see or restrict sharing permissions and make the site accessible only to people you want to share it with. This workshop will give you the basics to get started creating your own Google Site. This session will incorporate instructor-led demonstration and hands-on guided practice. Please feel free to bring your laptop.
