Online at zoom.us. They click "join a meeting" then enter the code you send.

I think the other way is you schedule a meeting then send them a direct link.

I played with it a tiny bit today. I did a brief meeting with my son and will try one with colleagues later this week.

I've done google video meet with my students and I've been a participant in zoom meetings. When you go to google meet or after you sign up with zoom, you will be given a code. I post the code on my google classroom page and I've emailed it as well. I've been able to set up a chat time for kids to ask questions are tell me about the progress on their projects.

I'm using Google Hangouts with my students and I've done Zoom meetings with coworkers and family. I really like Zoom better but others are saying that Zoom has security issues (they sell information???) and a my district is looking into the legalities involved in video conferencing (do we need permission slips from parents?). There's so much to consider.

But, if you can, use Zoom. I have student directions on Google Slides that I would share here if I knew how.

I would have thought that the permission slip ship has sailed away. If the district is doing online learning during this time, my thought is that the parent either lets the child participate or not. The child is sitting in their home. The parent has the control. The parent doesn't have to give himself a permission slip for the child to log on.

I feel like that's on the parent. At some point, parents have to parent.
