This article discusses how to use Breakout Rooms with the Zoom Rooms hybrid classrooms. It requires some adjustments to who hosts the meeting during breakouts.


In this article:

Setting up breakout rooms

  1. Enable breakout rooms for the meeting in question.
  2. Prior to using breakout rooms, carefully review Zoom's setup documentation. Breakout rooms can be assigned on-the-fly or using pre-assignments
  3. Be aware of the various limitations of breakout rooms.
  4. Briefly review documentation on the breakout room experience from attendee perspective.

Running a breakout room via Zoom Rooms

Zoom meetings in hybrid classrooms are meant to be hosted by the room (ie, started from the Zoom Rooms touchpanel). However, one of the limitations of breakout rooms is that they must be run by a meeting host. 

  1. Start your meeting as usual from the Zoom Rooms touchpanel. 
  2. Select the Breakout Room button option
