As part of the Google Apps for Education service at CU-Boulder, you can find two templates to help you get started with Google sites.
In the spring semester, we observed students and faculty members using Google Apps for Education (GAFE) to facilitate teaching and learning. We found that GAFE provides affordances for sharing artifacts among faculty and students, encouraging conversations at a distance, and providing tools for course management. Instructors and students voiced a desire for tools that encourage participation, sharing, and collaborative knowledge building.
