"NEW" GOOGLE SITES
The new Google Sites is now available to all HES and HA users and will soon be rolled out to all users. What's so cool about it? Well, essentially it is a work in progress. It has an updated interface. The "look" is more up to date. However, it is a pretty basic, simplified tool at the moment. Supposedly the development team is continuing to add new features to it as they prepare to phase out the old version. It's clean, easy to use, but only if you are adding all GSuite material. Embed codes are not currently supported as far as I can see.
There have been tons of blog posts about the new Google Sites. Here's a few links to get you started:
