Can teachers listen to breakout rooms without being in them?
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.
Breakout rooms can turn a passive lesson into interactive, collaborative dialogue for students. But teachers cannot see or hear what is going on in the different rooms easily or quickly.
You can refer to the document(s) students worked on back in the main session, and students will have the linked resource to take with them after they leave class. You, as the instructor, can provide comments and feedback to students on their work after class. You can monitor progress during breakout sessions.
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.
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. You can see the progress of all the groups on a single document.
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.
From the list of open breakout rooms hosts and co-hosts can see if participants are: screensharing, have current reactions posted as well as the status of participant's video and microphone feeds.
Chat is available in breakout rooms only if chat is enabled in the main meeting room.
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.

Can teachers record breakout rooms in zoom?
Recording Zoom meetings can be a useful tool, but there are some limitations when it comes to recording breakout rooms. The standard is that breakout rooms are not captured. If you wish to capture your breakout rooms, it is important to make special plans to ensure that your content is recorded as you intend.
Once you've created breakout rooms, you can make changes to the rooms or join each breakout room to monitor and participate in discussions. Tip: Meeting hosts won't see chat messages that were exchanged between participants before they join or after they leave a breakout room.
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.
