Two Tip Tuesday 20 - Google Meet as Zoom Back-up
From Matthew Rust on September 1st, 2020
On the first day of the Fall 2020 semester, we experienced serious Zoom frustrations.
And that was a good reminder that we
should be prepared with back-up videoconferencing options in case of future
outages. Fortunately, there are two UITS-recommended, IU-licensed products we
already have access to which also provide videoconferencing and screen sharing.
While Zoom remains the preferred solution (easiest-to-learn and navigate),
Google Meet is the recommended Plan B, with Microsoft Teams representing Plan
C. But that Microsoft Teams option is definitely a distant Plan C.
This week's Two Tip Tuesday overviews how to quickly access and share your IU Google Meet room.
