Use Breakout Rooms for Small Group Discussion

This article applies to: Microsoft Teams

Meeting organizers can create breakout rooms in a Microsoft Teams meeting. Breakout rooms let attendees separate into small groups during a meeting. The rooms can be opened and closed multiple times during the larger meeting. To get started, see Microsoft's Create and manage breakout rooms during class meetings. While the how-to refers to classes and students, the instructions will work for all Cornell faculty and staff who organize a meeting in Teams.
