T3: Easy Webpage Creation and Hosting with Google Sites

Do you need to create a webpage for a class, project, or for your own personal use? As a student, faculty, or staff member of the university, you have access to software to help you design a webpage and storage space on UW-Whitewater’s servers to host your finished site. Sometimes, the idea of designing your own webpage and hosting it on a campus server is too daunting or time-consuming to contemplate. In that case, Google Sites¬†may be the answer.

As part of UW-Whitewater’s suite of Google Apps, Google Sites¬†allows you to create and publish webpages using a simple editing interface that works like Google’s document creator. Once you pick a template for your site, it is easy to quickly build a functional website in an hour or so. All you need are a few clicks of the mouse to publish your page after you finish filling in the content.

Log in to your UW-Whitewater Google Sites page and get started!
