Meantime is a noun and meanwhile is an adverb, but they mean mostly the same thing. For example you would use "I am going to start school on Wednesday, but in the meantime I will get ready." "I am going to school, meanwhile I am taking care of my brother." They can both mean at the same time but "in the mean time" is used a lot for the period between "now" and when the next thing is going to happen. In my example it would be "now" and "Wednesday"
