Embedding Documents, Gadgets, and Media in a Site
Care to guess what this exam objective is all about? Rightit's a website, and you can add stuff to it. Teachers can create a web page that serves as a syllabus with links to specific documents, quizzes, surveys, spreadsheets, videos, and other elements.
Students could create reports with links to videos they've created, presentations, and documents for review. It's not difficult to add standard content or links to elements within Google Sites.
Google Sites also allows users to add gadgets to their site pages. A gadget is a small application that integrates into the site; for example, teachers could have a web page that has an SAT/ACT Word of the Day, This Day in History factoid, or even just the Apps Calendar. Google Apps Administrators can configure which gadgets are allowed or blacklisted from the site.
