The new Google Sites arrived for everyone in November (Finally!). And according to many early adopters, Sites is a cinch to use.
What does the new Google Sites have to offer and how does it compare to the classic version?. Mike Reading, Google Certified Teacher and Trainer and Microsoft Master Educator. Using Technology Better, no pub. date.The new Google Sites, with 🎉 drag-and-drop and 🎉 real-time co-editing, is looking simple for the moment (just a few themes to choose from), but things are guaranteed to change, ala Google's MO. Luckily, my favorite feature is already in place: 🎉 seamless integration with other GSuite products. And a must-have feature? 🎉 automatic optimization of Sites for different devices.
(One drawback is that you can't move your classic site over to the new.)

If you're the type who likes to jump right in and try new things, all you will need is the Google Sites Help Center website, and a Google Sites Cheat Sheet, which you can download HERE.

For those who would like a little assistance with visuals (always pausable) and a friendly, authoritative voice, try the video tutorials below, created by excellent trainers I personally trust.
The video tutorials are in reverse chronological order. I will add more I recommend, as they become available. Grab a cup of your favorite beverage for the shorter tutorials, or linger with a second cup for the longer tutorials: your choice!
