How to Use Google Hangouts Meet in Google Classroom

Last week Google introduced a new way to incorporate Google Meet (AKA Google Hangouts Meet) into Google Classroom. The old method still works as well. In fact, I had already scheduled some meetings with the old method so that's what I used with my students this morning. Moving forward I'll be using the new method. Both methods for scheduling and hosting Google Hangouts Meet events are featured in my new video that is embedded below.


Answers to FAQs about Google Meet in Google Classroom:
  • With the new permanent Google Meet link your students cannot join before you (if you're using G Suite for Edu). 
  • You can reset the link if you need to. 
  • Students can't rejoin after you close the meeting. 
  • Yes, you can re-use the links within the same classroom. 
  • No, it is not the same link for all Classrooms within your G Suite for Edu account. 
    • If you have five Classrooms, you'll have five links.
