Today we focus on the 3rd (and final) column in the “Insert” Menu Bar option.
If you are just tuning in, here are the previous post: Setting Up Your Site – Google Sites Basics – 1st Column Insert – Adding Pages – 2nd Column Insert
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.
Chart is a graph that is located inside of one of your Google Spreadsheets.
Drive can be anything you have in your Google Drive including videos
Google+ is becoming more and more popular and the enticement of Photo storage and organization is bringing more and more people over.
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…)
Map is a great gadget that you’ve seen before on other websites.
YouTube is another gadget you’ve seen before.
And – test a few out! Tomorrow, our last day, we’ll look at the layout and how to create a template to share with your class to make their own websites.
