Video Conferencing

What is Video Conferencing?

Video conferencing allows people to meet online in a virtual space using any device. There is video and sound transmitted live from anywhere in the world. All that is needed is an internet connection and a video conferencing tool. There are three supported tools that you can use:

Google Meet

Google Meet is a video conferencing application. The solution enables users to make video calls with up to 250 users per high-definition video meeting that can be recorded. The application (computer or mobile device) allows users to join pre-scheduled meetings from calendar events, choose a link, enter meeting code and even dial in from their phones if the invitation includes a phone number. Google Meet integrates with G Suite versions of Google Calendar and Gmail and shows the complete list of participants and scheduled meetings. It shows a Join button for users to connect to the meeting and provides options to mute and turn off the video during the meeting. Ways you can use Google Meet: Live lectures / webinars; One on one virtual meetings; Group virtual meetings; or Student group work.
