Automatically Generating Individual Student Portfolio Sites

No comments

A really nice way for students to show learning, collate a project, or demonstrate progress is through a Google Site. Creating site templates is a really nice way to give students a pro-forma of what you want included. However, in practice it can be quite a logistical task getting hundreds of students to find the template site that you have created, make a copy of it, and share it with you.

I've created a Google Site generator that solves this issue. By filling in a few details and pressing the button on the template, you will automatically create a new site for every student on the spreadsheet. What's best is that each site will now appear in the student's 'Sites' page. This is a much easier way of getting students up and running and they can get straight to the editing part! You can then access all students sites directly from the spreadsheet.

You can make a copy of the template here.

All you have to do is add in your names and emails in the appropriate column, edit the information in the yellow cells, then press the button! You'll have to authorise the script first.


(this will only work if you are using a Google Apps for Education account)
