Ready for School ETLC Week 2 - Create a Class Website

Start your school year with a hub for your announcements, calendar, student resources, parent resources, and student work spotlights... Create a class website! We are a Google Apps for Education (GAFE) district, so Google Sites is our recommended platform for teacher/class websites.  

Creating your class website will require you to invest a bit of time up-front.  Review the options below, then plan some time to create your website this week.

Options:
  • Watch 5 Basic Things to Get Started in Google Sites.
    Hint:
    Complete the components described in each section of the video before moving on to watch the next section.
  • Watch the Google Sites tutorial series in Atomic Learning.
    Hint: Complete the components described in each video or section before moving on to watch the next video.  
  • Follow the one-page guide to plan and create your Google Site. 
    Hint: Use this page in conjunction with one of the video options above.
Share:
We grow when we collaborate and learn form one another.  Once your initial Google Site is created, please share it on Twitter using the hashtag #okcpsETLC.  If you don't love Twitter just yet, post the link to your Google Site in the Comments below this blog post.  

Important Note:  
Google Sites is not very intuitive at first glance.  Take your time and explore.  Contact your ETS Coach with any questions; we're here to help!
