7 Hidden Tips for Google Sites - Teacher Tech | E-Learning, Instructional Design, and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
I have been loving using Google Sites to create tutorials. The autosizing of pictures, the easy insertion of items from Google Drive, mixing text with video and images, and other features that just make the process easier. Along the way I’ve discovered some hidden features of Google Sites that you might like to try!
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Google Sites Integrations | E-Learning, Instructional Design, 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.
