18 HOW TO CREATE BREAKOUT ROOMS Moderators can create breakout rooms within the main online room. Breakout rooms have the same features as the main room and can be used to allow groups within the online room to meet. Breakout rooms have their own private Audio, Video, Whiteboard, Application Sharing, etc., so the collaboration that takes place in a breakout room is independent of the Main room (and other breakout rooms). Note: What is said or viewed in a breakout room will not be captured in a recording. Public: A public breakout room does not require anyone in the room. Moderators can create the room and load content into it before moving participants into the room. The content will remain even after everyone leaves the room. Private: A private breakout room is temporary and closes when no one is left in the room. To create a breakout room, you can: Click on Tools > Breakout Rooms > Create Breakout Rooms OR Click on the Participants Option menu and select Create Breakout Rooms A new window will appear. Complete the form and click Create. HOW TO ASSIGN ATTENDEES TO A BREAKOUT ROOM A moderator can move an attendee to a breakout room: From the dropdown menu bar to the right of the attendee s name, select Send to Breakout Room. Select the appropriate breakout room D2L Services, , x2 18

19 HOW TO CREATE AN ONLINE ROOM ARCHIVE If you would like to archive (record) your Online Room session so that it will be available for future viewing, check the Archive Mode setting in the Advanced Properties of the room when you create or edit the room and adjust accordingly: Archive Mode Select an archive mode from the dropdown list: Manual The Moderator must manually start recording the meeting to obtain archives of the meeting. Automatic The meeting is automatically recorded. Disabled Blocks the ability to record a room. If an archive was not set up at the time the online room was created, the moderator can still record the online session by clicking on Record in the top right hand corner of the screen. HOW TO VIEW AN ARCHIVED RECORDING After the online room/meeting is complete, the recorded archive will be available after the background synchronization has run. Note: The synchronization will not run unless everyone has exited the online room. An archive can be viewed by either of the following steps: From the online room dropdown, select View Archives. Click the Archive Name to view recording. OR Click on the Online Room Name, then select the Archives tab to view archived recordings. Click the Archive Name to view recording. D2L Services, , x2 19

20 TROUBLESHOOTING & SUPPORT Trouble logging into online room: D2L Services recommends the use of Mozilla Firefox browser when working within D2L and Bb Collaborate online rooms. Be sure there are no pop ups blocked on the browser. The Blackboard Collaborate Launcher must be installed prior to joining and online room. This installation only has to happen one time/computer. If you are getting an echo or there is a delay when speaking: Ask all participants to turn off their microphones. If someone has called in and has his/her microphone turned on, ask him or her to turn off his or her microphone. If using the Application-sharing window and the content being shared does not fit into attendees application sharing window (content/whiteboard area), ask attendees to utilize the scale to Fit Page tool located underneath the Main toolbar. Note that this option must be selected by the participants and cannot be set by the moderator. If participants see a black box over the shared application, it is best to share your desktop versus a single application. For example, if an Excel file is shared, then another application, such as Word, is shared, on top of the original application (i.e. Excel file), the Word file will not be shared/viewed and will appear as a black box to participants. If you need to share more than one application, it is best to share your desktop. QUESTIONS, TRAINING & SUPPORT West Chester University, D2L Services , x2 D2L Services, , x2 20
