As of today, 120 million students and educators all around the world are using Google’s “G Suite for Education” to create, collaborate, and communicate despite school closures during this COVID pandemic crisis. Recently Google made their virtual meeting and collaboration platform “Google Meet” to work even better for schools and colleges by improving safety and security features considering the needs of schools and colleges.
For decades schools and colleges have used traditional and complex learning management systems(LMS) to manage online class content. With the recent digital transformation trends, more educational institutions have started implementing advanced LMS and video conferencing tools. Along with startups, technology giants like Microsoft and Google also started promoting their digital teaching and learning tools. Google recently integrated Google Classroom with Google Meet so that teachers and students find it easy to access and join the meeting directly from their online classroom.
The COVID pandemic impact exponentially increased the interest and demand in online classroom and video conference tools. Google Classroom integrated with Google Meet was the default choice for many educators in schools and colleges. And above all, educators liked the fact that Google Meet is a free tool. Anyone with a Google Account can create a video meeting, invite participants, and meet for up to 60 minutes per meeting for free.
Google Meet contains features to simplify the video conferencing needs of schools and colleges. The features include scheduling and recording of meetings, screen share to share desktop and presentations, ability to conduct large meetings with up to 250 participants, and Livestream of events where you can allow up to 100,000 viewers to watch the live broadcast of the event.
Even though Google Meet is primarily used by businesses, it carries many advantages for users from schools and colleges. The teachers, students, and parents involved in the school and college operations think and behave differently from the professionals who use Google Meet for business-related conferences. The advantages for schools and colleges include:
The safety features of Google Meet App for Online Classes
Safety by Standards
Safety by Best Practices
