Connectivity between educational institutions and students through Google’s Teach from Home Hub.
Teach from Home Hub a treasure trove of information and tools aimed at helping educational institutions during COVID-19.
Many educational institutions around the world have closed or are planning to increase their lockouts due to COVID-19. Therefore, a large number of students around the world cannot go to school. Educational institutions, at an exceptional level, face difficulties in distance education, and this is the first time for some of them.
Google has developed a distance-learning tool called Teach from Home. Which includes information, advice, training, and tools available on Google for Education to help teachers learn about their education.

In addition, schools and other educational institutions can use the premium features of Google Meet video conferencing free until September 30, 2020. These features include the ability to contact up to 250 people in a single call, record lessons, and even stream live.
