Advantages

Easy to use, no programming skills required.

Disadvantages

Due to its ease of use, the options are limited compared to a more advanced web page editor.

Usage in teaching/learning

It allows both teachers and students to upload and share digital content (e.g. learning content, subject specific information, news, exercises, homework, deadlines). It can be used to summarise content related to a class or to a subject. It can host a student e-portfolio, a unit or even a project. It can be edited online,  by several people at the same time (we decide who has access to what).

Another advantage is that additional Google applications (e.g. Calendar, Spaces, Slides) can be integrated into the interface and further content (e.g. textbook, timeline, mind map, YouTube video) can be embedded directly. This way we can create a thematic website where all the course materials, information, exercises, homework, deadlines, end-of-term tests, etc. are available from a single point.
