With schools around the world closing as a precaution against spreading the coronavirus, Google has announced several ways to help educators create digital environments so learning can continue without being gathered together (source). 

Google announced that Hangouts Meet will now be available for all GSuite users and can include up to 250 people at once. The new features of Hangouts Meet will also allow for the live-streaming of up to 100,000 people so schools can have county wide assemblies if needed (source). 

Other ways Google can assist educators with distance learning is through utilizing their already collaborative tools like comments in Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides and implementing Google Classroom (source). Google has created numerous resources including EDU on Air and a teacher resource center to help educators get started with these products.
