Google Meet From Google Classroom
SCHEDULING A GOOGLE MEET FROM INSIDE GOOGLE CLASSROOM
It’s not as seamless as it should be but it is possible! You will have to do some additional steps to do it. Here's how:
All teachers and students in a Google Classroom are put into an automatically-generated group. This group is named the same as the classroom name. We will use this group to schedule the Meet. Here’s how:
- Using Google Calendar, make an event in the future when you plan to have your teacher-led instruction. Enter an event title (i.e.: "Adding Fractions Live Meet"), and make sure the date/time is set. Feel free to fill in as much additional information you wish.
- Enter the More Options page and select "Add Conferencing". You should see the option to use Google Meet. Once selected, a link to the conference you created will be made available. Copy this link and save it for later.
- While still in the Calendar More Options page, add your Classroom as a Guest. Enter your Classroom name and it should auto-propagate.
- Save your calendar entry, and send the notice to recipients. This will send an email to your students about the meeting, including a Calendar invite for them.
This is great, as it creates the calendar event for all teachers/students in the classroom. This is all that's required to have your Google Meet... but it doesn't show up in Classroom anywhere. So, there are a few additional steps:
- Enter your Google Classroom that you setup the Google Meet for.
- Create a Question in the Classwork tab.
- Have the Question be titled based on your lesson. For example: "Adding Fractions Live Meet"
- Have the description explain that this is a video meeting for your students to join at the specified time.
- Add a Link to the Question, and use the Google Meet link you created using Google Calendar.
- Set the Points for the question to "Ungraded" unless you wish to use this feature.
- Set a Due Date/Time equal to the Date/Time of the Meet.
- Save your Question.
Doing this creates an entry into the Google Classroom calendar. It will be visible in the classwork pages and will have a link to the Meet.
Hopefully this is useful. Also hopefully, an additional "Meet" option is added to Google Classroom under the Classwork Create button that automates all of this.
