Google Sites allows you to create a custom website with your own content. You can set up a site for your class, your school, your library, or any other group that needs to share information and ideas. You can invite others to be editors and owners of the site so they can collaborate with you to build your website. The editor makes it possible to build a site in minutes, create templates for others to use, collaborate with others and create different pages such as announcements, dashboards, file cabinets, or lists. As the author, you have control over who has access to the site by sharing with everyone or only specific individuals. Google Sites also has the ability to embed media from many other Google services, including Picasa Web Albums, YouTube videos, and Google Docs. You can also insert images, tables, and other resources from outside of Google.
