Allow Participants to Choose Own Breakout Rooms

If you use Pre-Assigned Breakout Rooms, the Technology and Learning Program always recommends Allowing Participants to Choose Their Own Breakout Room as a best practice. This will help busy hosts better manage their meetings because Participants can join breakout rooms on their own if problems arise. 

  • Start your Zoom meeting. From the Zoom task bar, select Breakout Rooms.

  • Select Options > Allow Participants to choose room. 


Opening Pre-Assigned Breakout Rooms

  • Please allow some practice time with pre-assigned breakout rooms. 
  • Provide the following instructions to your students BEFORE the meeting:
    • Activate your Chico State Zoom account.
    • Sign in to Zoom using the Chico State Single Sign On option.
