Google Classroom is an online learning environment where you work with the tutor and other students; this will involve a regular video meeting every week, using the Google Meets app, with supporting learning resources in the virtual Google Classroom.

In the Google Classroom, you can meet your tutor and other learners on your course. This is a classroom facility where you can message and chat by typing, watch videos and presentations and access your assignments and work, take part in quizzes etc.
In the Google Meet, you will be able to take part in live video meetings and have the option to turn your camera and microphone on or off. This is an excellent way to discuss things with your tutor.
We don’t record sessions and this feature is switched off we also request that learners do not record the sessions using external equipment.
