Samba Live 5.3.0 has implemented the Breakout Room feature which allows you to assign audience users into various sub-groups called Breakout Rooms where they can collaborate until you pull them back into the main room. With this feature, you will be able to offer a dedicated space for your participants or students to work on group assignments and pull them back afterwards.
Enabling Breakout Rooms
Breakout Rooms can be turned on upon setting up a meeting or editing a scheduled meeting. Once you have created your Meeting, click on Advanced Options and then choose the tab Access, then check the Enable Breakout Rooms button. Don’t forget to hit save or schedule.
Creating breakout rooms
Upon entering the meeting room, click on the Breakout Rooms icon.
The Breakout Rooms panel will appear, click on Create Breakout Rooms
From there, you can choose how many breakout rooms you need and how you want to assign your participants.
Once done, all the breakout rooms you have created will show in the Breakout Rooms panel where you can Rename, Delete or Create a breakout room, as well as Add Users.
Starting breakout rooms
Click on Start Breakout to divide your participants into groups.
During the breakouts
Participants can ask for help.
If your participants need help, you can join any breakout room.
You can broadcast a message to announce the end of the group activity or other important messages.
Ending Breakout Rooms
To pull back your participants to the main room, click on the Stop Breakout button.
