Using Google Meet
Last modified on 26 August 2022 03:26 PM

Google Meet is a synchronous platform designed for live online video meetings with multiple users. This application is offered as a part of the U of A's google suite so is easily available to all CCID at UAlberta users and can integrate easily with Google Calendar and other tools. Convenient apps also exist for Android and iOS devices.

To get started, please review the requirements for using Google Meet.

Update for Fall 2022: Google has announced that access to Meet premium features (e.g. hosting meetings up to 500 people, recording meetings directly to Google Drive, and more) will be available for instructors through their UAlberta G Suite accounts. For all other campus users (staff, students), the standard Google Meet features are still available.

It is still recommended to use Zoom as the video conference tool for online classes of more than 300 students or less. To learn more about Zoom, visit: Using Zoom - Instructors
