June 12th –  A Week With Google Sites

The 3rd and final column of the “Insert” focuses on all the Google options you have.  These options include: Apps Script, Calendar, Chart, Drive, Google+, Group, Hangout, Map, and YouTube.

Apps Script is something you can create in a different Google Service (I’ll be covering Google Scripts in another post in the future).

Calendar you can embed a calendar created for the site or your own showing your availability.

Group can insert a Google Group, but with Google+ becoming more popular with Communities you’ll need to find one still going strong.

Hangout allows you to make yourself even more accessible to the people browsing your website (I’m sure someone has a good reason to use this…)
