Google Meet for Blackboard allows you to create a Google Meet meeting and share the link with your students. Our integration allows users to launch Google Meet meetings directly within any Learn course.

Google Meet links are valid for 24-hours after they're first accessed. When the 24-hour access period expires, the link becomes invalid and you'll need to create a new Google Meet meeting.
