Beyond the Template: Creating Robust Web Resources for the Classroom with Google Sites Online
The pandemic has raised expectations and expanded possibilities for online teaching: students have come to expect a baseline of well-designed and well-curated online content to support their coursework, and a number of freely available, low-threshold web design tools have expanded their range and deepened their offerings in ways that help instructors meet or exceed these new expectations. These tools also present parallel opportunities for faculty to collaborate with librarians in the creation of appealing, fully-featured online guides to scholarship to accompany their courses, which can significantly deepen student engagement with course content. In this webinar, I will describe how I created a robust and attractive course site for an introductory class in ancient Greek language and culture as well as a wide-ranging online guide to authoritative scholarship on ancient Greek civilization, both using the free and easy-to-use Google Sites platform.
