External exam tools - Google Meet

NOTE! At present, Google's services such as Meet, Translate, etc. work only on Chromebooks.


It's crucial that an Account manager at the school verifies the external tool and ensures that it works in the school's IT environment.

Google Meet can be added as an External tool and the meeting link can be used for student monitoring during an exam.  The teacher can monitor the students taking the exam in the Digiexam client.


Add a new external tool and name it "Google Meet" which is what the external tool will allow, no other parts will be available for students in the exam.


When the Account Manager adds the external tool, Landing page URL can be left blank if that's supported in the school or organization. This would allow students to enter as guests in the meeting.


If students can't access a meeting link as guests, the domain login page  can be added in the Landing page URL. 


To allow re-directs during student log in to their Google account, you can whitelist the domains used by your students in Allowlists like:

Students will only access the meeting link in the exam, even if additional URL's are added.


Teachers need to be able to set/edit the landing page URL, e.g. pasting the meeting link used for the exam.


If supported, in the list of allowed URL's, only is allowed as a whole domain or with partial access to the domain.


Set Equipment check to be used since the external tool is created for student monitoring in the exam.
