Breakout rooms allow you to split the group from the main room into separate rooms to interact independently. Breakout rooms are meant for private group interaction, and cannot be recorded.
Here are details and tips when using breakout rooms:
1. You can create up to 8 breakouts rooms from one classroom. Using the primary room as another breakout, that means it would be a total of 9 rooms! There is no upper limit on the number of students per breakout.
If you need more than 9 rooms you can increase the number of breakouts exponentially, but it requires a bit of planning.
- Add another session under the same class called "Breakout 2" and direct the students you want to join the breakouts back to the class page and have them join that session also. You also need to be in that room and split them up accordingly
- This can be done to accommodate as many sessions as you need. It would look like this:
2. When using breakout rooms you can split users up randomly or specify rooms you want people to be in by dragging them.
3. Once you start the breakout rooms, users will be asked to join, like this:
4. As a moderator you can join each of the breakout rooms, broadcast a message to the breakout rooms, and end the rooms to bring students back whenever you want!
5. Note: Participants will need to join audio when they join the breakout room AND when they come back to the main room. They will not stay connected to both audio feeds at one time (for obvious reasons).
