Join a Google Meet Video


How to Join a Google Meet Video Conference Hosted by Your Teacher


Prerequisites and things to know:

1. You must be using your Central Islip School district Google account to use Google Meet
for distance learning.

2. If you are participating in the conference and would like others to see you, you will need a USB web Camera. It is still possible to participate in the conference without a USB web camera, but you will need to have a microphone connected to the system so that others can hear you. Note: Most Laptops have built in Webcams and mics. If you have neither a USB camera or microphone, you will still be able to view the video conference but will not be able to interact. 



Steps to Participating in a Google Meet conference 

1. Assuming you are already logged in to your Central Islip school district Google Classroom, select the waffle icon on the top right corner of your classroom and select the Google Meet icon. Note: If you are not logged in, click on the link Student Login Portal and sign in to the student login portal.

2. Select Join or start a meeting. 

3. Enter the “Meeting code” or “nickname” that the teacher provided to you or posted to their Google classroom and click continue. Note: The name of the meeting  will be the teacher's last name, google classroom name and current date (i.e. SmithMath04162020)

4. A white box is going to pop up asking for permission for Google Meet to use your camera or microphone - if one is connected, click the allow button. 

5. The next step is to join the meeting - click on the Join now icon



Congratulations! You have successfully joined your teacher’s
