Project Management using Google Sites

My office has been playing around with the Google Sites wiki for the last few weeks (I’ve written about Google Sites before.) We’ve been using it to collaboratively author mini-reports as well as staff meeting agendas.

I would like to try to use a wiki site to track an online course development project. It would be a place where the project team could define goals, publish milestones, post files and monitor progress on project activities. I think Google Sites would be perfect for this and it is an easy to use and free online application. I am definately going to use it when I start my next project.

Today I came across someone else who has built a nice Google Sites template for project management activity. Check out the link and let me know what you think by leaving a comment below.

Not bad, the calendar feature also seems great and fits the context very well.

I agree but it appears quite far from a web-based PM in which different tools are synchronized

seems like it could be pretty useful. Is there a way to take the template, though, and use it on your own Site? I couldn't figure that out.
