We use Office 365 and I want to move our staff to use more of Lync. In the past we have used Blackboard Collaborate. The only major function BB Collaborate provides that Lync does not is breakout groups. We can bring a large group together (say 20 people) them break them out into groups of 5. Is there a way for Lync to provide breakout rooms that can be assigned?
I know breakout rooms were available back in the livemeeting days but do not see it in Lync.
Based on my research, break out room is a Live Meeting feature. It’s not available in Lync 2010 or Lync 2013. For more detailed information, you can refer to the following articles:
