WebEx SGUBUH License Starting in WBS40.9, you can use breakout sessions in meetings to place your participants into smaller groups where they can collaborate and share ideas.

Hosts and cohosts create breakout sessions, assign participants and then, when they're ready, start the sessions.

Attendees can share content and use collaboration tools such as Chat, to collaborate in smaller, more focused discussion groups.

During a meeting, or event, the presenter can specify chat privileges for participants. These privileges determine which participants can send chat messages.

As a presenter, you can use a poll to create and share questionnaires. Polls can be useful for gathering feedback, taking votes, or testing knowledge.

When you share your screen in Webex, everyone in the meeting can easily see what's being discussed. Anyone can share their screen, but only one person can share at a time.

Zoom FREE 40 minutes Breakout rooms allow you to split your Zoom meeting in up to 50 separate sessions. The meeting host can choose to split the participants of the meeting into these separate sessions automatically or manually, and can switch between sessions at any time.

There is an option to pre-assign breakout rooms (requires that participants have a Zoom account)

The in-meeting chat allows you to send chat messages to other users within a meeting. You can send a private message to an individual user, or you can send a message to an entire group. As the host, you can choose who the participants can chat with or to disable chat entirely.

In-meeting chat can be saved manually or automatically. Auto-save chat will automatically save your in-meeting chat locally on your computer. You can also manually save your chat when you start a local cloud recording.

The polling feature for meetings allows you to create single choice or multiple choice polling questions for your meetings. You will be able to launch the poll during your meeting and gather the responses from your attendees. You also have the ability to download a report of polling after the meeting. Polls can also be conducted anonymously, if you do not wish to collect participant information with the poll results.
