Can people in zoom breakout rooms communicate with the host?
Within each breakout room, participants can chat if participant chat is enabled in the main room, and at the same level it's enabled in the main room. If participants can only chat with the host/co-host in the main room, they will not be able to chat with other participants in breakout rooms.
Muting all participants
The host or co-host can mute all participants that are already in the meeting, as well as new participants joining the meeting. Click Participants located in the meeting controls.
Participating in the breakout room
You will be able to mute and unmute like you can in the main session.
You can create up to 50 breakout rooms. The maximum number of participants in a single breakout room depends on the meeting capacity, number of breakout rooms created, and if participants are assigned during the meeting or before the meeting. These numbers only apply to breakout rooms created during a meeting.
I'm happy to help you today. In my experience, hosts or organizers won't be able to hear conversations from breakout rooms where they are not actively in unless they've recorded the meeting. I hope this helps.
Solution #1: Make sure you aren't muted
If it is, click the microphone icon to unmute. While participant microphones will generally remained muted during the TSRT series, during future breakout sessions it will be important that your microphone is functioning properly and that you are able to mute and unmute it.
Within the breakout rooms the chat function is disabled for all students although in the main meeting chat is enabled for them, even when they have the presenter role (see image). For teachers the chat function is enabled.
No, teachers cannot hear breakout rooms. If you are in a breakout room your teacher cannot hear anything what is being said in the breakout room. The only way a teacher can hear a breakout room is to enter the breakout room themselves.
In the Participant list, a hand icon will appear for the attendee seeking to speak. Click the three-dots/more-actions icon that appears with the attendee's name. From the menu, select "Allow to unmute." The attendee is notified: "Your mic has been enabled.
Once breakout rooms have been set up in a Zoom meeting, if you are either host or co-host, you can move in and out of breakout rooms at will. As host, you can join and leave any breakout room from the main meeting room.
Can two people manage breakout rooms?
If you're the meeting organizer, you can delegate presenters to manage the meeting's breakout rooms. Breakout rooms managers can: Add and delete rooms. Assign and reassign participants to rooms.
Importantly, the breakout rooms must be monitored on the screen at all times by the teacher who creates them. If a teacher must stop monitoring one or more Google Meets (breakout rooms) for any reason, they must shut the Google Meet session down.
Hosts and co-hosts can join any room by clicking Join. Anyone in a breakout room can click Ask For Help to request that the host join the breakout room. You cannot, however, see or hear what is happening in breakout rooms that you are not in.
