Use Breakout Rooms
Before you host a training with activities and breakouts, review these best practices.
If you are planning to collaborate on files in your Google Drive, we suggest you prepare these before the training. View the article to learn more.
Share and collaborate on different types of content including Google Drive documents, YouTube videos, Miro whiteboard, and files on your computer. All participants can view and make edits on the Miro whiteboard and on shared Google Drive files such as Google Doc, Google Sheet, Google Slide, and Google Drawing.
Split your training into groups using breakouts. You can have up to 50 breakout groups or place all participants in one. All participants will be randomly assigned to a breakout or you can drag and drop participants to specific breakouts before starting. Once your breakout is set, select Start breakout. Once started, you cannot move participants from one breakout to another. To move participants, end the breakout and start a new one.
If a breakout is in progress and a participant joins late, they will be randomly assigned to a breakout. Participants who don't successfully join a breakout will be listed under "An attendee hasn't joined the breakout yet". View the article for more help.
If participants collaborated on a shared Google file, you can open your Google Drive and share these files once the breakouts have ended.
