Video Breakout Rooms allows Foneo Meetings users to easily place meeting attendees into sub-meetings for group discussion, activities, projects and more.
When you host a foneo meeting, you will see the Breakout
Rooms button at the bottom of the Foneo Meetings panel. While you are sharing your screen, the button is under the "more" menu.Click here to start using Breakout Rooms.
Foneo Meetings will show the number of eligible participants. Choose how many rooms to create and let foneo assign the participants automatically or choose to manually assign them for more control as we will demonstrate it here.
"Create Breakout Rooms" to proceed. Your Breakout Rooms are now available and participants are still in the main meeting. Float your mouse over the Breakout Room to rename or delete the room.
Click to assign participants, check their names and click assign again. Do this for each Breakout Room. Your participants are now assigned.
If you want to change an assignment, float your mouse over a participant name where you can move the participant to another room or exchange the participant with someone already assigned to another room.
When you're ready, click to ìopen all rooms.
This will cause your participants to automatically move into their assigned Breakout Room.
The list will indicate that participants have successfully connected when the gray dot turns green.
Meeting participants will be prompted to join Breakout Rooms where they can speak on audio, show their webcams, share screen and chat normally.They can also ask for help to send a prompt to the meeting host.
Participants can also choose to leave the Breakout Room any time to be returned to the main meeting.
Return to the Breakout Rooms list as the host and you can choose to join any of the breakout rooms to offer assistance.
You can broadcast a message to participants and a banner will be displayed. This is great for instructions or timing announcements. Again, float your mouse over a participant name to move the participant.
When you are ready, close the Breakout Rooms. Participants will have 60 seconds to finish their discussion and will be returned to the main meeting.
Open the Breakout Rooms menu again to quickly reopen the same Breakout Rooms or to make new assignments.
