Re: Breakout rooms?

I agree, in general. But...

We are implementing a new ERP system and our user workshops are being held in Teams. The main part of the training is in the group, then the users are pushed off into groups to carry out specific tasks, to ensure they have understood what they have been shown.

Having breakout rooms would have been useful for that. The trainer could then switch between groups and ensure they understand what they are supposed to be doing, instead of everybody leaving the meeting and making 2 or 3 way calls for 20 minutes, then re-joining the meeting.

It should certainly simplify the next round of training.
