Breakout Rooms

One of the best Zoom features for teaching, Breakout Rooms allow for much closer interaction between you and your audience. It's also useful to pair or group students for quick practice sessions during your meeting. Then bring them back together to go over what they discussed. This engagement is called Think-Pair-Share in education practices.

You can either assign groups automatically, or manually divide up your students. People in a breakout room can raise their hand to request your assistance and you can pop in and out of groups as they're working.

Be careful when recording the meeting. If you, as the host, go into a breakout room, you'll lose the feed of the main room. Your recording will follow you into the breakout room.
