Google Sites

If you have a club, class project, or special interest that you would like to share, you can quickly and easily create a Google site. You can even choose who has access to your site.  Google provides support for creating your Google site; be sure to check it out by clicking here.

Google Groups

A Google Group is an electronic mailing list and much more. Colgate uses Groups for campus mailing lists, such as all employees, the class of 2017, and the Biology Department. You can request that ITS create other groups for your applications.

In addition to distributing mail from a single address to multiple members, groups can archive all messages for later access and can control the appearance of messages. Members can control their own subscriptions. Further, groups can be used to simplify the sharing of Google Docs and other resources.
