Google Course Builder - create your own online courses

Google Course Builder is a new resource from Google that allows you to create your own online courses. Google used it to create their Power Searching with Google online course. It has all of the software and instructions for creating an online course. Your course can contain lesson materials, student activities, and assessments. There are also instructions for integrating other Google products into your course.

The course builder does require some knowledge of HTML and JavaScript, but you can learn that online too. The site has tons of resources to help you build your course and they have Google Hangouts to help you with experts you can ask for help. The instructions are well written and step-by-step and there are checklists and timeframes to help.

This could be a great way for teachers, or schools/districts, to build their own online courses.
