How To Use ZOOM Virtual Breakout Rooms
Breakout rooms in ZOOM, do require knowing some steps, settings and options. Once you understand the navigation, then they are a perfect addition to an online meeting or virtual learning experience! Online learning can sometimes be boring, especially when people are distracted by other things in their actual environment. ZOOM virtual breakout rooms are a fantastic way to draw people into the experience, keep them engaged and deepening the learning experience. (FYI: Additional links and resources at the end of this page.)
Filming and editing this video was a big undertaking! I hope you find it helps! No podcast for this one, the step the step is helpful with visuals. A future podcast will share more about the use of breakout rooms and advantages for your participants, and facilitation.
WOW! There was a lot to film and explain! See the Pinned Comment below the YouTube video for the full table of contents. This instructional video guide covers a lot! Breakout room settings, navigation, messages, communication, participant and host views, and much more!
UPDATE: You can also ‘unclick’ any cohosts, when you have created randomized rooms, and move people automatically. Because you have unclicked the cohosts, or guest speakers, they won’t be moved into the rooms. Recommend testing this next time you are hosting a meeting with breakouts.
Additional steps, details and resources provided through our online courses, live online workshops and individual training sessions. Book a complimentary meeting if you are interested, and stay tuned for more details about our virtual programs.
I value your questions, and will update information based on your needs.
Manually assigned breakout rooms, more info here: https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/206476313-Managing-Breakout-Rooms You can only pre-assign ahead of time with people who have ZOOM accounts (this works with a pre-registration process for your meeting). For those who use the link, but don’t download the app, they have to be added to the rooms during the meeting/training.
