Google Meetings Extensions


Google Meetings Extensions

22 May ’20 Digital Learning 0

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.
