Google recently unveiled a sweeping update to Google Sites and we’re pleased to announce that the new version will be available at the University of Minnesota on Jan. 31!

As with most of their new products, Google will continue to release new features and functionality as time goes by but here’s an overview of its streamlined capabilities:

  • Sites are now automatically formatted with mobile devices in mind

  • Improved integration of content from Google Drive

  • Easily arrange content sections on each page

The current version of Google Sites (“Classic”) will remain available alongside the new version.  To learn more about Google sites, compare it with other available web tools, or begin building your site, visit IT@UMN's Google Sites page. If you have any questions, contact Technology Help.
