Comments from some of those who selected Google Sites as one of their Top 10 Tools

  • “Very easy to create a free website, particularly for light, internal audiences to collate materials around a given subject.:” Anon, UK
  • “This is an excellent eportfolio solution. It is also useful for creating workbooks” Anon, New Zealand
  • “I have moved my classes out of our LMS onto this open platform. Its been a much better experience for us all.” 2015
  • “provides the ability to create & publish accessible content”  Shannon Bosley 2013
  • “an easy way to get a web/wiki site up and running” Stephanie Horden
  • “This wiki based service provides the capacity to develop online-learning communities in ways that I feel surpass any of the efforts that many have been making to put the power of community/collaboration in peoples hands.  (ex. Microsoft has likely spent a great deal of time and money to enable the Innovative Teacher Network… yet it falls far short of the quality or potential of Google Sites.)”  Mark Arnold
