Google Hangouts Meet Tutorial

As many schools are transitioning to distance learning over the next couple of weeks, I thought it would be helpful to make a tutorial for Google Hangouts Meet.  Google Hangouts Meet is an easy way to hold high-quality video meetings (for free!), collaborate and continue to build relationships with your students from a distance. Per Google, some of the key features of Google Hangouts Meet include:

  • High-definition video and audio meetings with up to 250 participants
  • Real-time captions powered by Google speech-to-text technology
  • Easy access – just share a link and anyone can join with one click from desktop or mobile
  • Easily record your meetings and it will automatically save in Google Drive
  • Integration with Calendar for seamless scheduling and easy access to meeting details and calendar attachments from your Meet video call

Below, you will find step-by-step and video instructions on how to use Google Hangouts Meet in your school site and/or district. Click on the image below for access to this FREE document to share with your colleagues or make your own copy via the link below:

  1. One of my colleagues mentioned the Gridview GoogleMeet chrome extension that places all of your participants within the same screen. It is a great addition to the already awesome GoogleMeet platform.
