How to Quickly Incorporate Google Meet Into Google Classroom

Thanks to a Tweet from Chris Pirkl yesterday evening I learned that Google has now made it easier to post Google Meet links in Google Classroom. In fact, now you can now have a Google Meet link permanently assigned to each of your classrooms with Google Classroom. This means that you can have the same meeting link for an entire semester or year. I like this because no longer have to worry about remembering to post the link for each online meeting that I have with my students. Instead, we now have the same link for every meeting and I just need to post a quick reminder for my students to join the meeting at our regular meeting times.

You can find the new Google Meet and Google Classroom integration in the settings in each of your Google Classrooms. Remember that if you have more than one classroom you will have a different Meet link for each of those classrooms.

In the following video I demonstrate how to activate the new Google Meet and Google Classroom integration.
