How to use Google Meet - For Teachers - A step by step guide
In this article, we will look at the Google Meet Application in detail, we are writing this for Teachers, if you are a Student, your interface is much simpler and is discussed in a separate article.
We think that the best presentation experience for a Teacher with Google Meet is from a Touchscreen Laptop with a reasonably big screen (Linux or Windows or Chrome OS). Google meet benefits from the touch input as the Teacher can write and draw on the touchscreen while presenting.
Screenshots shown in this article are taken on a Laptop with the application accessed through a browser. For Phones or Tablets, the layout of the screen and the placement of the buttons will change, but the features and functionality will remain the same (We tested it on many devices).
Starting Google Meet
If the School uses "GSuite for Education", you do not need to provide the "Meet Code", you can login with Gmail and start the session, the meet link will be displayed on the "Class Card" for students. If NOT, the process to start a meeting is as follows :
