UW-Madison Google Apps - Using a Google Sites Template
When creating a Google Site, users can use pre-made templates instead of creating one from scratch. With a template, a site can be made quickly and easily by entering in data to appear on the site without having to build a layout.
Please note that Google Sites are most appropriate for individuals needing to get a web page or site up and running quickly. Campus departments or offices should use the UW-Madison Web templates for their public websites.
There are many Google Sites templates available, including sites with accessibility built in. Follow these instructions to use a template:
