Google Introduces Google Sites

Feb 29, 2008


Google introduced Google Sites, an application that intends to make creating a team website as easy as editing a document. With Google Sites, people can gather a variety of information in one place--including videos, calendars, presentations, attachments, and text--and share it for viewing or editing with a small group, their entire organization, or the world. Creating and editing a set of pages in a Google Site requires no knowledge of HTML or web design skills. People can start a new page with one click. Anyone inside an organization can begin using Google Sites by signing up for Google Apps communication and collaboration services through Team Edition. With Google Sites, people can create a wide variety of sites, such as: an intranet to centralize company information; a team site to manage a project; a profile site including an individual's resume, areas of expertise, and goals for the quarter; and a virtual classroom to post homework assignments, class notes, and other resources.
