Breakout Rooms in Zoom are virtual rooms that allow participants to split into smaller groups during a video conference. The host of the meeting can create multiple breakout rooms and assign participants to each room. This feature is particularly useful for larger meetings or classes where participants need to collaborate in smaller groups. Breakout Rooms can be used for brainstorming sessions, group discussions, team-building activities, and more.
To use Breakout Rooms in Zoom, the host of the meeting needs to enable the feature in the settings. Once enabled, the host can create breakout rooms and assign participants to each room manually or randomly. Participants can join their assigned breakout room by clicking on the "Join" button. The host can also set a timer for the breakout session and send messages to all participants in the breakout rooms. After the breakout session is over, participants will be automatically brought back to the main meeting room.
Breakout Rooms in Zoom offer several benefits for remote teams and online classes. Firstly, they allow participants to collaborate in smaller groups, which can lead to more productive discussions and better engagement. Secondly, they provide a sense of privacy and intimacy, which can be particularly important for sensitive topics or personal sharing. Thirdly, they allow the host to manage the meeting more effectively by assigning roles and tasks to different breakout rooms. Finally, they can save time and increase efficiency by allowing participants to work on different tasks simultaneously.
