Google Classroom has many built-in ways to communicate with your students. This includes emailing student or guardians, creating posts, questions, assignments and quizzes. You can link to any page on the web, and you can upload any file to share information.

But one thing that is not well integrated into Classroom (but all hope is that it is integrated soon) is Google Meet for teacher-led instruction.

But it is possible! You will have to do some additional steps to do it. Here's how:

  1. All teachers and students in a Google Classroom are put into a automatically-generated group. This group is named the same as the classroom name. We will use this group to schedule the Meet.
  2. Using Google Calendar, make an event in the future when you plan to have your teacher-led instruction. Enter a event title (i.e.: "Adding Fractions Live Meet"), and make sure the date/time is set. Feel free to fill in as much additional information you wish. 
  3. Enter the More Options page, and select "Add Conferencing". You should see the option to use Google Meet. Once selected, a link to the conference you created will be made available. Copy this link and save it for later.
  4. While still in the Calendar More Options page, add your Classroom as a Guest. Enter your Classroom name and it should auto-propagate. 
  5. Save your calendar entry, and send the notice to recipients. This will send an email to your students about the meeting, including a Calendar invite for them.

This is great, as it creates the calendar event for all teachers/students in the classroom. This is all that's required to have your Google Meet... but it doesn't show up in Classroom anywhere. So, there are a few additional steps:

  1. Enter your Google Classroom that you setup the Google Meet for.
  2. Create a Question in the Classwork tab.
  3. Have the Question be titled based on your lesson. For example: "Adding Fractions Live Meet"
  4. Have the description explain that this is a video meeting for your students to join at the specified time.
  5. Add a Link to the Question, and use the Google Meet link you created using Google Calendar.
  6. Set the Points for the question to "Ungraded" unless you wish to use this feature.
  7. Set a Due Date/Time equal to the Date/Time of the Meet.
  8. Save your Question.

Doing this creates an entry into the Google Classroom calendar. It will be visible in the classwork pages and will have a link to the Meet.

Hopefully this is useful. Also hopefully, an additional "Meet" option is added to Google Classroom under the Classwork Create button that automates all of this.

How should a meeting be created when in some of our courses the in-course calendar is not available?


Only few of my courses have a Google Calendar link inside, 
but the vast majority have no calendar link. All the calendars have the same owner and they all have been created following the same procedure.


Tried asking to support but had no answer.

It looks like the "No Calendar" issue can be fixed. See this other Classroom Help question:


Even if you don't have the Calendar, you can still have an announcement to inform your students of the upcoming Meet. I just gave instructions for a Question because it can be set with a due date/time.

Dear Matthew,

I read the link you posted, but nothing has changed. Inside classroom we found no other way to inform of an upcoming meeting than posting the meet url.

We tried as well to "create" manually a calendar for the course, but it's not as effective as the in-classroom link

Anyhow, it looks that in nighttime some other calendar link popped up inside courses that yesteday did not have it.

I have a teacher that does not have the Meet option under settings. Why? Other teachers do.
