Matthew White, senior Business Transformation Center (BTC) engineer at Ingram Micro, demos the new Webex Breakout Sessions feature, which allows Webex hosts to place participants into smaller groups where they can collaborate and share ideas.
Check out this short video to see step-by-step instructions for creating breakout sessions (automatically, manually or letting users select) and performing configurations such as:
- Name the session
- Allow attendees to return to the main meeting
- Allow attendees to join a session later
- Automatically end a breakout session after x minutes
- When session ends, give participants more time before returning to main meeting
- Set countdown timer
Hosts also have the ability to send pop-up messages to one or more breakout sessions via the “Broadcast” button.
Each breakout session is a separate audio and video conference. If you connected to audio when you joined the meeting, it switches over automatically when you join a breakout session. You can mute or unmute your audio and start or stop your video at any time during the breakout session, just like you would in the main session.
