For example it would be great to be able to give remote control of your computer and mouse to another person in the meeting, or to take control of someone else's computer. This could be useful if you wanted your student to do an activity on your computer in a teletherapy session, or if you need to give or receive technology support.
Unfortunately Google Meet does not have a built-in option to give remote control over to another person. Thankfully Google has provided an incredibly simple tool that can be used right along with Google Meet to accomplish this. That tool is called Chrome Remote Desktop.
To help with this I have recorded a quick 11-minute video that explains this in detail by covering three topics:
- First, how to install the Chrome Remote Desktop extension.
- Second, the normal method for using this tool to give remote control of your computer and mouse to someone else
- And third, a secret trick for a super easy and fast method to use this tool that will let even the youngest student control your mouse with a single click. That's right, just one click.
