  • Scheduling Google Meet Sessions

    1) Use Google Meet from within Google Classroom

    • Use link in Google Classroom: Google Classroom has a class link that you can instantly start a session. 
      1. Only the teacher can start a session and students cannot enter without teacher.   
      2. Students cannot rejoin after the teacher has closed the session (recommend waiting ~60 sec. after last student leaves to end session).
      3. You do not have administrator rights to mute or remove participants.

    2) Go to Meet.google.com and use a "Nickname"

    • Go to meet.google.com and use a “nickname” for the session
      1. Only the teacher can start a session and students cannot enter without teacher.   
      2. Students cannot rejoin after the teacher has closed the session (recommend waiting ~60 sec. after last student leaves to end session). Meeting participants will not be able to re-join nicknamed meetings once the final participant has left.
      3. The nicknamed meeting should be created just before the meeting starts, but students can be told the nickname ahead of time. 
      4. Owner/creator of the Meet session can mute and remove participants.
      5. You can reuse the session name for recurring sessions (ex. Every Tues. and Thurs. at 10 am). You have to recreate the session each time and simply reuse the same nickname.

    3) Schedule a Google Meet in Google Calendar (not recommended for most situations with students) 

    • Schedule a meeting in Google Calendar
      1. Meeting room is open ~15 minutes prior to start of meeting, students can enter without teacher.   
      2. Students after the teacher has closed the session (recommend waiting ~60 sec. after last student leaves to end session).
      3. Creator of Calendar event and meet session can mute and remove participants.  
      4. Do not recommend scheduling recurring sessions (ex. Every Tues. and Thurs. at 10 am) because anyone can enter without teachers.

     

    Tip: if you want to schedule Google meet session in Google Calendar, do not add a Google Meet Link, rather, share generic link (Meet.google.com) and the “nickname” in the notes section.  Then send to students.

    Troubleshooting Tips

    Students:

    • Have the students temporarily remove the Nod extension and the Grid View extension because those have been causing issues with allowing Google Meet to load properly.  

    Teachers:

    • Reset Google Meet link
    • Last resort in a pinch - create a new Google Meet from within Google Calendar (instructions in the section "Scheduling Google Meet Sessions"
