How to prepare for a videoconference (Google Meet)

Here are some quick tips on how to prepare for a videoconference, and what to expect when you join a Google Meet link like the one used in our private workshops.

Take a few minutes before the start time to make sure your equipment works. Follow these guidelines:

  • Prepare your space – don’t have any distractions behind you, make sure it’s quiet and comfortable. Make sure you have adequate lighting and that your desk/table is clear.
  • Prepare your camera – make sure it is working. Make sure the angle is appropriate and you have adequate lighting.
  • Prepare your sound – make sure you can hear. If you are having trouble with sound, try plugging in earphones. Silence your cellphone, be in a quiet room, and try not to eat food during the meeting (it’s distracting).

How to log in – click the “join meeting” link in your email. If you are accessing a workshop on your smartphone or tablet, you will be prompted to download the Google Hangouts/Hangouts Meet app and then sign in with your email address (it’s free). 

Take a look at this video to see how to mute and unmute yourself, how to turn your camera on or off and how to leave or rejoin if you accidentally leave.
