Google Meet

Google Meet is Google's new web conferencing platform. It has features above and beyond what a Google Hangouts video call provides. Everyone at Miami has access to Google Meet since it's part of our Google Apps for Education suite.

Consider accessibility when choosing web conferencing options. Webex is the preferred university supported tool and must be used whenever you have an enrolled student using deaf or hard of hearing accommodations (D/HoH), such as real time captioning. Google Meet may be used as an alternative option for courses that do not require D/HoH accommodations.
