Video Breakout Sessions for Webex Meetings
Video Breakout Sessions for Webex Meetings is finally here! On Sept. 15, Cisco deployed additional updates to Webex Meetings which included some new features, most notably Breakout Sessions.
Breakout sessions allow you to place your Webex Meeting participants into smaller groups to collaborate and share ideas. You can leverage breakout sessions in large group meetings, your remote classes, or when you need a moment to talk privately with a few participants outside the main meeting.
To help you navigate these new features, please check out these resources:
- Full LTC Blog Post detailing the Webex Meetings Update.
- Step-by-step documentation on using Breakout Sessions in Webex Meetings.
- “Breakouts in Webex Meetings” Training Sessions.
While the integration of breakout sessions will add an additional tool to your instructional toolkit, there are limitations. We do not currently recommend the use of breakouts during synchronous sessions held in the HyFlex Video Enabled rooms on campus. Instructors interested in using breakouts in these rooms are encouraged to contact the LTC for alternative suggestions.
