Making Google Classroom video meetings easier and more secure
3


We’ve made it easier and more secure for students and teachers to manage video meetings:

  • The Class Meet link is now accessible on the side of the class stream, so students can easily join and teachers can manage the link from the stream.
  • Students will be directed to a waiting room until a teacher has officially joined the class Meet link.


  • Guests not on the class roster will have to “ask to join” and be admitted by the teacher before they can participate, so no unintended participants join the meetings..
  • All designated co-teachers for a class will automatically be co-hosts in the meeting. With multiple moderatorsAs co-hosts, they’ll be able to start the meeting with the same Meet link without the class teacher needing to be present.
  • If a teacher or co-teacher goes to a class with an outdated Meet link which doesn’t have these new features they can upgrade this link in the manage dialog in the class stream. When upgrading the Meet link for that class, you also have the option to upgrade all of the outdated Meet links across all classes that you teach. This is a quick and easy way to make sure that all Classroom Meet links have new security features.


Additional details
Please note that after a Meet link is generated, if a co-teacher is added or removed, you must regenerate the Meet link to update the host status. We are working on changing this functionality so the host status auto-updates, and hope to implement the change by the end of the year.  
 
Rollout status
This feature is in the process of being rolled out to all users. By 9/28 all Classroom users will have access to the new feature.

I have quick access off but all my students who are listed in my google classroom just come into the meet with out having to ask.  It is the feature of the new meet.  It needs to be in the settings that we can still have students ask to join.,

We are experiencing the same issues as EimyDiana and Vitor. That is, the Meet recordings and attendance log are often owned by a co-teacher and the main teacher is unable to share the recording with the class.

We have asked our main teachers to Reset the Meet Link for that class and join the new Meet straight away to ensure they own it (similar to what we used to have to do with the old meet short cuts) but initial impressions are that even this might not be enough (although we're still gathering data).

While one or two of our classes actually have multiple "main" teachers (who share the teaching load), all our classes have co-teachers:
  • from the learning support department so they can see what is being assigned and assist students who have additional needs
  • a central "ICT support" teacher so we can get alongside teachers and provide them support
As such, this is affecting a large number of people at our school and is very frustrating for teachers (who can't upload recordings) and for our learning support staff who are being bombarded with emails about "their" recordings for Meets they didn't attend (and have never attended!).

It would be super helpful if someone in support could talk to a product manager to find out:
  • what is the intended behaviour around recording and attendance ownership for classes with multiple teachers?
  • what is the actual behaviour?
  • is this use case adequately tested (in the test suite and/or by QA):
    • what happens to recordings when there are multiple teachers who alternate the teaching load, with only one teacher in any given Meet?
    • what happens to recordings when there are multiple teachers who share the teaching load, with both teachers in a Meet?
    • what happens with recordings when there are additional co-teachers who never join the Meet?
My naïve suggestion is that for Classroom Meets:
  • the recording should be owned by the teaching group (e.g. Y2023_10_LANG1_MPr_2020_teachers_875dad14@school.edu) so that all current teachers have access, even new teachers who are added to the class later
  • the email notification about the recording should be sent to the main host and whichever teacher pressed "Record" (if they are different)
