Preventing students from Joining Google Meets when a teacher is not present

Updated September 2020

  • Students can not create their own Google classroom. Nor can they join a class before a teacher when the teacher uses nick-names e.g. “Bobs class”. This is true even if they copy the string associated with the meeting: e.g. https://meet.google.com/xxx-xxxx-xxx
  • Creating a meet by calendar invite has no such restrictions and students will be able to join before teachers.
  • Students cannot rejoin a Google classroom if the teacher is the last person to leave the class. In the past a class could take up to 90 seconds to become inactive. Our testing shows that it is nearly instant now.
  • Google Meets will soon support “Break out rooms” but that feature is in beta. We'll make it available when we become aware that it's become active within our domain.
