Google Sites for Online Lessons

Learn about this simple website builder

The Center for Online Learning and Innovation (COLI) will host a workshop on Google Sites on Tuesday, May 29 at noon in Old Main 119. 

In this workshop for Canisius faculty and staff, learn the basics of using Google Sites and related apps to create interactive lessons and training modules.  The summer is a good time to pick up skills for and experiment with quick and easy technologies for teaching and learning.

Google Sites is a simple website builder that’s part of the Google toolset supplied to all Canisius faculty, staff and students, and it requires a lot less time than other web-building tools.  Google Sites is ideal for creating online lessons that contain all sorts of media and even interactive elements.  Other Google Apps-generated media, including forms and slides, embed nicely within a Google Site.  Students can create sites themselves for assignments that foster critical analysis of web-based presentation.   Google Sites is also great for creating training content outside of courses.

Refreshments will be served.  Please RSVP by emailing  Hope to see you there!
