Using Google Meet in itslearning and Fronter 19

Live video conferencing tools help create more dynamic lessons and engage students - especially when remote learning.

You can use Google Meet directly from the toolbar of our rich text editor. Simply add a Google Meet event anywhere in itslearning and Fronter 19 that has a rich text editor for instance assignments, or note.

Here's what you need to get started:

  • You must have a school Google account (G Suite for Education) to use this feature. A personal Gmail account will not work.
  • To enable this option in the toolbar of the editor, your system administrator needs to check the setting 'Allow users to create a Google Meet from the rich-text editor' under 'Admin >> Edit global settings >> Cloud services'. Once there, check the setting 'Allow users to create a Google Meet from the rich-text editor' on the Google tab.
