Google Sites for Education
The perfect option for schools & districts
The Current Situation
Haven't we all seen many websites fall into disrepair in the sphere of education. Many websites for schools, districts and area service districts have been built upon platforms which are difficult to maintain for the average in-house IT team; perhaps it was Joomla, Wordpress, Drupal or otherwise. Thousands of educational organizations have adopted Google Apps for Education and so there is good news by way of Google Sites.
A Proposed Solution
We propose to tech coordinators, administrators and IT teams to consider a real long-lasting solution to the fore mentioned issues. Let's take a look at each of the corresponding solutions. A trusted designer and consultant can forge a plan, build a custom design and breathe life into the idea of web design for the client. IT teams can delegate content by school, department or teacher via page level permissions from the Google accounts they already use. Google Sites can facilitate as the easy to use platform already available and free to use.
What our client's say about Sites for Education
Netdemics CEO, John Meixner
Kirksville Web Design is our go-to partner for Sites design. When we show others the projects Kirksville completed for us, the most common reaction is "Wow! I didn't know Sites could look that good!"
Placer Union High School District Director of Technology, Gregg Ramseth
As a Google Apps school district, we chose a website solution built exclusively in Sites. Why not, since we teach Sites to students for their portfolios and to teachers for their course webpages? We live and work in the Google Apps ecosystem; shouldn't our website reflect that dynamic space? It’s also worth noting Sites' page permissions feature, which allows for shared responsibility of updating content. Our campuses are dynamic places, with stories to tell about academics, sports, clubs, cultural events, even campus emergencies. Using Sites, with its integration with Docs, Calendar, Forms & Maps, is a logical, flexible website solution for schools and simply made smart sense for Placer Union.
