Google Meetings Extensions
Having now taught four remote lessons with Google Meeting – I was missing a few teaching tools.
Grid View along side Google’s Gallery view – allows you to see all of your attendees.
Nod – Reactions to Google Meet plus the very useful hands-up. All attendees need the extension installed.
Push to Talk – Hold spacebar to mute and unmute audio. Again all attendees need the extension installed. All attendees need to manually mute.
Google Meeting is not going to win best-in-show for video conferencing, however these three extension make it better for teaching. We await a break out room feature…
Lastly Tactiq Pins – is an interesting professional feature. Using the built in “Captions” feature, Tactiq saves transcription from a Google Meeting.
