This is a page of search results for Google Sites. The search retrieved 38 results. The video tutorials are well designed.


Site is well organized with strong search features in including tags. 


The scope of the site (as indicated by their logo) is "Tips, Tricks, and tools for Gmail & Google Apps".

Google Sites Integrations

Google Sites Integrations | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Google Sites not only offers an easy-to-use interface for publishing content to the web quickly, but also offers a host of integrations with other Google Apps services. You can easily embed documents, spreadsheets, and presentations you’ve created in Google Drive by using the insert function. The feature I really like is the ability to embed a video. Now that Drive allows you to store and play several video formats such as mp4 and wmv, you can easily upload your video to Drive and embed it on your site for others to view.


Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Google Sites is a powerful (some say overly complex) way to create a website.  Here's a tech oriented quick explanation how to use Google Drive with Google Sites to embed video.

Check out Google Tips to learn more about the many products that Google offers. One you find a tip that interests you and click on it you will find a short description, "stuff you need" (typically a Google account and perhaps a short amount of time based on what I viewed) and a presentation that walks you through steps. This is geared more to beginners and may be a great tool for students whom may be trying new tools.

81 Ways Teachers Can Use Google Forms with Their Students

81 Ways Teachers Can Use Google Forms with Their Students | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Google Apps is one of the powerful digital toolkit for teachers. It is packed with all kinds of apps you can use both in your teaching and for your professional growth . Think about services such as Gmail, Google Docs, Presentations, Forms, Google Calendar, Google Education, and the list goes on and on. Most of these tools are free and are part and parcel of our digital being. I am personally a huge fan of Google services and I use almost all of them including Google Code.I have been writing a lot of tutorials on each of these tools and I will still keep you updated about any new releases in this regard. Just keep in mind that I am just a teacher like you, I have no affiliation with Google and I am not paid to write about its services here, the only things that drives me to cover Google services in my posts are their practical productivity and relevance, their powerful free features, their awesome user experience, and the level of security they provide its users.

Google+ Hangouts in Online Education: A Capable, Low-Cost Solution by Rebecca Bodrero : Learning Solutions Magazine

Google+ Hangouts in Online Education: A Capable, Low-Cost Solution by Rebecca Bodrero : Learning Solutions Magazine | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

“Effective use of any tool is most typically the result of how it is used, not the fact that it is used. Procedural and logistical aspects should be part of planning for use of a tool such as Hangouts. For example, it’s common knowledge that in-person meetings and small group activities are more likely to be effective when facilitated and driven by purpose. The same principle applies to video conferencing.”
