Google Sites is Google’s website creator. I love using Google Sites because it is quick and easy to share information. Here are 3 things to try with your students and Google Sites.
Hide from Navigation
I create one Google Sites for my entire school year to use as tutorials. Instead of linking students to YouTube videos or Google Doc directions, build a page in Google Sites instead. In the sidebar on the right, select “Pages” and add a new page. Use the 3 dots when hovering over the page title in the sidebar to choose “Hide from navigation.”
You will need to provide students the direct link to that page since it is hidden from the Site navigation. You must PUBLISH the site (upper right). After publishing, click on the link icon in the toolbar along the top to get the link to that specific page.
Paste Links to Google Slides
The fastest way to embed a Google Slides (or YouTube) into a Google Sites is to DOUBLE CLICK. Use the embed option that looks like a yellow less than greater than. < >. Simply paste the link to the Google Slides and it will convert it to an embed. No need to manually get the embed code.
On an individual page you may want more control over the design of the page. Hover over the header and use the trash can icon on the left hand side.
