Can teachers hear you in teams breakout rooms?
It seems that there is an issue with breakout rooms at Microsoft Teams during classes. When the teacher connects to the room, he/she can't hear students (but they can hear him/her and each other).
As the host, you will not be sorted into one of the breakout rooms, and cannot hear what is being discussed in the Breakout Rooms. However, you can visit individual Breakout Rooms to check in on the discussions happening in a particular room.
Students and teachers can record Breakout Rooms just like they can in a regular Teams meeting. More options . 3. Open the menu and select Start recording.
Messages sent in chat from a breakout room are only viewable to those in that breakout room. Main room chat sent while participants are in the breakout rooms does not show in breakout room chat.
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.
While in a breakout room, users cannot hear audio from the main Zoom session. If the Host wishes to communicate to everyone at once, they can “Broadcast” a text-based message to all participants.
As the host, you can join one breakout room at a time. If you want to monitor students' progress across all rooms, set up a Google Doc that all students can edit and ask students to make notes as they work with their groups.
Meeting hosts can broadcast messages to attendees in all breakout rooms, participants in breakout rooms can click the “Ask for Help” button to request the meeting host join their room.
Hosts and co-hosts cannot send chat messages to the breakout rooms from the main session. While inside a room, participants cannot send chat messages to the host while inside a room, but can request assistance.
So, yes, your Microsoft Teams video calls could be monitored without you being aware of it.
How do Teams communicate with breakout rooms?
Each breakout room has its own chat. All of the chats are available in your main Teams Chat list. Here you can chat with the members of any breakout room. After you join a breakout room, you can also select Chat in the room to chat with the people there.
Chat is available in breakout rooms only if chat is enabled in the main meeting room.
