Google Sites

Google Sites is for staff, faculty and students to create their own website where multiple people can collaborate and share files.  Anyone in the UW-Whitewater community with proper ID credentials has been granted owner access to this service.  Google Sites is not intended to replace UWW Faculty/Staff Web sites but serves as a supplemental option for creating Web sites that may be used by faculty, staff and students at UW-Whitewater.

With Google Sites, people can work together on a Site to add file attachments, including information from other Google applications like Google Docs, Google Calendar, YouTube and Picasa.  Creating a site together is as easy as editing a document, and you always control who has access, whether it’s just yourself, your team, or your whole organization. You can even publish Sites to the world.

Everything is available to get you started.  Features include creating a page with single-click (no HTML knowledge necessary), personalizing the content or used a predefined template, plus the ability to upload files and attach documents.  Site creators, or anyone granted owner access to a site, can add collaborators or change their site sharing settings.

The tutorial is available at: Google: Docs and Sites or sign up for training at http://signup.uww.edu.
