|Description of tool||Google Meet is a standards-based video conferencing application that uses proprietary protocols for video, audio and data transcoding. Educators can create a unique Meet link for each class. The link acts as a dedicated meeting space for each class, making it easy for both VET staff and learners to join. Even if learners do not have Gmail accounts, they will be able to click on the link and attend the meeting. Only meeting creators and calendar owners can mute or remove other participants. This ensures that instructors cannot be removed or muted by participating learners. Recordings include the active speaker and anything that is presented. An email with the recording link is automatically sent to the meeting organiser and the person who started the recording.|
