Accessing the Google Meet session
Your tutor will share a link to the Google Meet session, possibly in your course area in Google Classroom. It should look something like this: https://meet.google.com/xxx-yyyy-zzz
Just click on the session link. You will not need to log into Google Meet.
Join the session about 10 minutes before the start time. In that way, the tutor can admit you and you will not distract others by trying to join late. Please note you will not be able to join earlier than 10 minutes beforehand.
