Google Meet, the video conferencing service by Google, has introduced a bunch of recent updates for its G Suite Enterprise for Education prospects. The new options embody attendance stories, a Q&A bit and polling, and can be rolled out to eligible customers by the top of this month. These options be a part of extra new options on Google Meet, comparable to software program pushed noise cancellation, which was launched on Google Meet for enterprise customers earlier.
Google Meet Enterprise for Education prospects can already use polling, which permits educators to “periodically check” whether or not college students aren’t falling behind any classwork. Students may vote for particular subjects that they like or require to be attended to on the on-line classes. Speaking on the function, Samir Pradhan, group product supervisor at Google Meet stated, “Polls can also make classes fun with icebreakers to revive class engagement, start discussions or debate a topic.”
With the Q&A function, college students would have the option to ask questions with out “disrupting the flow of the lesson or discussion”. However, teachers can hide any questions, and also enable or disable question submissions at any time. Google says that the Q&A on Meet will arrive in the coming days, without specifying the exact date of the rollout.
For attendance reports, teachers can take class attendances via Google Sheets, as long as a classroom has at least five participants. Google says the company will add more controls to this feature, later this year. Another update that Google Meet is adding later this year is a digital whiteboard, with Jamboard. The feature can be restricted by the admin, selecting the “who’s allowed to current” setting.
Lastly, educators can now split students into small groups for discussions using ‘Breakout’ rooms. Over the next few months, Google Meet will add new controls to this, such as ‘ask for help’ for participants, to get the teacher’s attention. Breakout rooms is available to G Suite Enterprise for Education customers, starting today.
Last month, Google Meet announced noise cancellation for its Android and iOS enterprise customers. Using this, eligible users will be able to eliminate unwanted background noises to an extent, during a Meet video call.
