Sign in to Webex for group chat, video calling, and sharing documents with your team. It's all backed by Cisco security and reliability. The Webex Call app in Microsoft Teams will launch voice and video calls using the Webex app. The Webex app must be enabled for calling using either Webex Calling or Cisco Unified Communication Manager. Install both the Webex Call app with the Webex Meetings app to have access to both Cisco Calling and Meetings from Microsoft Teams.

Webex Teams can facilitate breakout rooms, but they are not automatic/controlled by the instructor. This article will describe how you can leverage Webex Teams to simulate breakout rooms. If you are already using Webex Teams in your course, using it to creating 'Breakout Rooms' for synchronous sessions can be effective.
Looking for integrated breakouts in your synchronous session? We suggest using Webex Meetings, which now has breakouts.

Why use Webex Teams in your course? Webex Teams is an all-in-one solution for communication and collaboration. Webex Teams leverages video calling technology for synchronous video meetings and combines this with messaging, file sharing, white boarding and more to provide continuous teamwork by facilitating the persistent sharing of information. The user-friendly, mobile-friendly environment appeals to students and offers the ability to communicate synchronously and asynchronously. In this way, the activities your students work on within their groups can persist beyond their synchronous session.

We understand that using Webex Teams for synchronous breakout sessions requires you and your students to actively join, leave, and rejoin meetings, which is not ideal. However, these steps provides some tips and tricks on how to manage your sessions.

This guide will go over the following areas:

Cisco Webex Teams application is free to download and offers easy-to-install, easy-to-use, secure, and reliable Messaging and Chat applications. This application’s primary functions are comprehensive and go beyond the features offered by others that can be considered as its rivals. I downloaded this App and it did not work on my Amazon Fire 10. Trying to join a meeting was a nightmare. Even when I did this via the Webex page it demanded I access through the App, which It would not recognise. To add insult to injury I now receive emails from Webex inviting me to set up my own meeting via the App.

Here is some information on how to get started with Webex Teams:

  • Download the Cisco Webex App and sign in using your UW-Whitewater email.
  • Get started with the Cisco Webex Teams App.
  • Consider joining a space with Learning Technology staff. Ask questions, try new things, test out Webex Teams, and more by joining the 'Teaching with Teams Sandbox' space. This is NOT a space for your students. It is designed to be a space for UWW faculty, instructors and Staff to practice using Webex Teams as they consider using it for teaching and learning. (Not sure what a sandbox is? Check out definition #2.)

If you are not already using Webex Teams with your class, we suggest some low-stakes introductory activities using Webex Teams for communication before using it for breakouts. This will give you and your students familiarity with the platform, comfort in using it, and an understanding of how it works. In addition, be clear about how you will be using Webex Teams for class, group work, and breakouts. We suggest creating a Module in your Canvas Course that includes information. Here are some ideas for pages within a Webex Teams Module:

As an example, here is some content you may wish to include on the “How do I get started with Webex Teams” page:

Webex microsoft app
  1. Download the Webex Teams App for your computer or laptop. You may find that putting the app on your phone is a good idea, if so, you’ll find the Webex Teams App at the App Store and Play Store. If you don’t want to download the app, you may access Webex via a web browser.
    1. When we do video calls for breakouts, it is HIGHLY recommended you use the app from either your computer or a mobile device. Video calls are possible from the browser version, but often experience technical difficulties.
  2. Sign in using your UWW e-mail. Do not create an account with Cisco.
  3. Start communicating! Send a hello message to our all-class space called General with (INSERT Name of Class) under it (replace with an image of your actual Team Space).
  4. Get to know more about Webex Teams with these helpful, short tutorial videos.

  1. If you haven’t already, Create a Team. The creation of your class Team will start a General space.
  2. Create the Breakout Spaces within the Team.
  3. Decide what access you wish your students to have to the Breakout sessions/assignments:
    1. Option 1: Allow students to choose their own breakout session. If you choose this option, you will add all your students to the TEAM. This will give them the ability to add themselves to any of the Spaces (Breakouts) that you create. They will also be able to move from Space to Space if you reassign or change the Breakout composition over the course of the semester.
      1. Follow instructions on how to Add Someone to a Team.
      2. Your students will then JOIN the appropriate Breakout group/session themselves, following directions on How to Join a Team Space.
    2. Option 2: Control how participants are placed into Breakouts. If you choose this option DO NOT add any team members to the Team as you will add students into the specific Space (Breakout). When using this option, you will also create a Space for the whole class and add all students to that Space. This is where you will schedule the Main (all student) class meeting.
      1. Follow instructions on how to Add People to a Space and add your students to the Main, full group Space as well as their designated Breakout Space.
  4. Schedule the sessions: Main, full-class session
    1. Option 1 (Student choice)
      1. Schedule your Main, full-class session in the General Space, in which all students are members. Follow directions on how to Schedule a Meeting with Everyone in a Space. Schedule the session for the entire expected class time, including the time the breakout sessions will take.
    2. Option 2 (Instructor Control)
      1. Schedule your Main, full-class session in the Space designated for all students. Follow directions on how to Schedule a Meeting with Everyone in a Space. Schedule the session for the entire expected class time, including the time the breakout sessions will take.
  5. Chose if you will schedule your Breakouts at a specific time, or if you will have your students start an Instant meeting from their breakout spaces. If you wish to schedule them, follow the scheduling procedure in each Breakout Space.,
  6. Communicate the breakout session procedure to your students using the Main Session messaging area. Include timing, breakout session directions/expectations, and any other information they may want to refer.
    1. For Instant call Breakouts: Appoint breakout session leaders who will initiate instant calls if you do not schedule the breakout sessions ahead of time.

  1. Start the Main, full-class session at the scheduled time (or a little before!) by clicking on the appointment you created.
  2. Your students will join the main session this way, as well.
  3. When it is time for the Breakout sessions, your students will leave the main session
  4. They will then move to their appointed Breakout Session Space by clicking on the name of that Space in their Spaces list.
    1. If you have pre-scheduled meetings, they will join with the above procedure.
    2. If they will be starting an instant meeting, you should designate ONE student from each group to initiate the breakout. That student will hit Meet in the Space. For more instructions on how to call with other devices, see these instructions.
    3. The other students will join that meeting/call by answering (clicking on) the prompt on their devices. They can also join the meeting/call by looking for the scheduled or active session in their Spaces list. (see screen shot below)
  5. The instructor may close the main session and pop in and out of Breakout Sessions/Spaces to check on the groups, listen, or let them know it is time to return to the main session. Do this by clicking on the green button beside the space name with the time counter running. After entering a breakout, leave by clicking on the red X in the meeting controls at the bottom of the window.
  6. Return to the Main Session and End Breakouts
    1. If you closed the Main Session, restart it when it is time for the students to rejoin (end breakout session).
    2. If you did not end the Main Session, students can rejoin it by clicking on the green button in the Space list that corresponds to the Main Session meeting.
      NOTE: Send a message to a space if that group has not ended their breakout to alert them to rejoin the Main Session.
