Improvements to Hangouts Meet
To improve the remote learning experience for teachers and students using Hangouts Meet, Google has made several improvements:
> Only meeting creators and calendar owners can mute or remove other participants in a meeting
> Meeting participants will not be able to re-join nicknamed meetings once the final participant has left
> Students can join a meeting without the ability to create a meeting
Teach From Home Website Launch
In partnership with the UNESCO Institute for Information Technologies in Education, Google has launched the Teach From Home Website which serves as a hub to help teachers and schools get started with Distance Learning.

We’ve compiled all of our distance learning tools, trainings, and resources on our COVID-19 response page.
