Do It Yourself – Website Tutorials

Learn how to make a class website with Google Sites. In this week’s education technology tutorial, veteran educator Sam Kary shows you everything you need to know in order to create a dynamic, interactive class website for your students.

Posting all your course materials online has always been an important way to make your class more accessible, but the uncertainty around whether or not schools will be teaching students remotely, in-person, or through a blended approach, makes creating a class website even more relevant.

In this video, you’ll learn how to use Google Sites to share assignments, course materials, and links to other technology programs, how to use a class website to showcase student work, how to use it to keep students and families updated about important school events, and more!

You’ll also learn how to integrate your Google Classroom with Google Sites in order to create a significantly more engaging and dynamic digital classroom experience!
