How to Embed Full Page Content Into Google Sites

The design options in Google Sites have come a long way in the last decade. In the early days Google Sites had lots of functionality, but little in the way of design options. Today, there are not only lots of great themes and templates, there are also many ways to customize the layout of every page within a website made with Google Sites. Embedding full page content is one design option that was recently added to Google Sites. 

In this short video I demonstrate how to embed full page content into Google Sites. This is a great option for displaying Google Docs, Slides, and videos on a page without displaying the footer or banner header on the page. Watch the video to see how it looks. 



Applications for Education
Even if you use Google Classroom and provide parent access, there is still a good argument to be made for using Google Sites. By creating a classroom website with Google Sites you can have a place where parents can quickly and easily find information like lunch menus, calendars, course information, and materials lists. Having a classroom website is also a good way to share highlights of what's going on in your classroom. For example, you could display an image carousel in Google Sites to display pictures of students' projects or highlights of the school year.
