Google Meet

Principal function(s): Video conferencing

Google Meet is a videoconferencing tool that can be used to secure online collaboration and synchronous learning. Users can join a meeting with a URL or invitation. The host can pin, mute or remove participants and also share their screen with their audience. Another great feature is live captions which make it easier for participants to follow the meeting. The chat allows users to instantly share text, images, audio or video files. Evaluation: The tool is a very good option for educators who want to meet online with their students, or for groups of students to meet together. The premium options also include features which allow you to record the sessions and also to live stream them if you wish. Breakout rooms are currently not available in Google Meet.

Cost: Free with registration + premium options available
