Google Meet is a web conferencing tool included in the Google Suite of tools available to ACC faculty, staff, and students. Up to 250 participants can take part in a Google Meet. Chat is included as well as options for backgrounds. Google Meet could be used for a course presentation, office hours, communication and even to monitor testing. Google Meet is not as powerful as Blackboard Collaborate or WebEx. For example, you can not assign your students to different groups for discussion or to complete a task.
ACC has four web conferencing tools available: Blackboard Collaborate, Google Meet, Zoom, and Webex. To decide which web conferencing tool is best for your needs, please reference the Web Conferencing Tools Comparison Chart.
