As part of the M+Google initiative, the University provides support for Google Sites. This platform offers a simple mechanism for anyone to create a free site for general use.
It's ideal for lab websites, faculty research websites, or student group sites.
What are the Benefits of This Service?
This free option is handy for small units with limited resources, and does not require a knowledge of HTML or other web development software.
U-M Google Sites offer:
- Health System and Medical School templates.
- MCommunity group integration.
- Online support documentation.
- Custom URL options. Note: Medical School lab websites built on Google Sites are eligible for a URL in the “lab.medicine.umich.edu” subdomain. Contact Michigan MultiMedia (M3) to request a UMMS lab website URL.
Is This Service Appropriate for Sensitive Information?
Sites containing PHI or any other sensitive information should not use this service. If you need help managing sensitive data, contact the MSIS Solutions Center at 734-936-8000.
