I am jumping for joy at the latest cool addition to my new favorite tool of the 2009-10 school year: GoogleSites! They are now offering pre-designed template to help you get started with your web design! As someone who has used both SharePoint and GoogleSites, I can assure you it IS much easier to work with GoogleSites in terms of editing and filing documents—fewer clicks and a much cleaner interface. Students and teachers who have used it at my school love it, and so do I! Google Sites has been a staple in my Media 21 toolbox for my students this semester.
Here is a sneak peek of the templates—they are up and running this morning! I encourage you to give Google Sites a try!
