Google Meet

What is Google Meet?

Google Meet is a web conferencing app that is part of our College provided software. It allows you to host a meeting with one or more people through voice, video and chat. Additionally, it has features like Screen Sharing, which allows you to show your computer screen for others to see.

Note: Given students potentially limited access to internet, meetings that your instructor hosts may be recorded for viewing later. These recordings will only be visible to those enrolled in this class, and students have the option for additional layers of privacy by renaming themselves in the Zoom room, muting their video, and muting their audio.

If you have any concerns or questions, please let your instructor know.
