How To Use Zoom (plus Breakout Groups) — Favorite Video Conferencing Platform



Zoom is my favorite video conferencing tool, and I use it many times a week. I get asked by clients all the time to teach them how to use it. Here’s a tutorial! Below, you can click on a timestamp to jump to that topic in the video.

0:49 Personal Meeting ID (PMI) is different for each Zoom account

1:00 What happens if you check the box “Always use PMI for instant meetings on this computer”

1:32 Scheduling a meeting
TIP: I actually prefer to schedule a new Recurring Meeting. see 4:10, even if it’s a one-time meeting, because I’ve noticed that for some reason. people can be confused by the meeting time. Recurring Meetings don’t have a label for the date/time of the meeting.

1:45 Video (when joining a meeting) — on or off?

2:20 Audio Options: I prefer “Both” instead of “telephone only” or “VoIP Only”

2:26 Why I don’t require meeting password, and when to

and whether to “Allow participants to unmute themselves”

8:52 How to stop someone’s video

8:58 How to spotlight (focus the attention on) someone’s video — including your own

I forgot to mention — it’s helpful to “Lock Meeting” if you frequently promote a particular Zoom link. Click Manage Participants, then More, then Lock Meeting.

9:45 How to record a zoom meeting

10:13 Gallery vs. Speaker Views

11:25 Moving the zoom window around, so you can look like you’re looking at the camera

12:51 How to mute yourself or stop your video

13:19 Changing the zoom audio or video settings, including mirror effect, “touch up my appearance”, enable HD, etc.

15:05 the chat room features

15:23 How to change how your name shows up on zoom with “Rename”

15:45 How to chat privately with another participant

16:13 How to save the chat transcript / chat roll in zoom

18:35 How to share the screen of your iPhone / iPad / Android device

19:36 How to stop your screen share

21:30 How to see the Chat box when you’re in screen-sharing mode

22:50 How to enable breakout groups in Zoom

23:25 How to share screen WITH sound so you can play a video for your participants and watch together.

25:48 How to do Breakout Rooms in Zoom.

26:10 You can rename breakout rooms, or move people from one room to another

26:27 Before starting the breakout room, unmute all so they don’t have to remember to do that themselves, and also recommend an order of speaking, e.g. alphabetical by first name

27:58 How to join a breakout room (as an admin)

28:47 You can’t hear what Leslie is saying because I didn’t record this video with allowing the computer sound to be heard, sorry 🙂 She was saying she’ll test the chat once I leave the room, to see if it comes through to the main chat. (It doesn’t.)

29:08 Re-size the zoom video windows by clicking & dragging either bottom corner

29:35 How to Broadcast a Message (an announcement text) to everyone in the breakout rooms

30:40 Tip: After breakout room, be sure to spotlight your own video again, so people know they’re back in the main room.

There’s “Leave meeting” (which means keeping the room open) and “End meeting” which means closing the room…. so that you can open another room and allow people to enter. With the kind of zoom account most of us have, we can only have 1 room open at a time… so whatever room you aren’t using, don’t just close the window (which equals “Leave meeting”) but do click End Meeting.

  1. What if you want to show just the speakers, when there are other participants?

    1. Set up your zoom meeting to have participants' video "off" by default.

    2. Have your speakers join your meeting a few minutes in advance so you can have them show their video.

    3. Once people start coming on, click the "hide non-video participants" button. See how to do that on this page: https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/201362323-How-Do-I-Change-The-Video-Layout-

  2. Hey George, thanks for this tutorial.. I really loved it… I have a question though,
    When you are using the breakout rooms, are you able to show one room to the other rooms? I mean, I'll have to use for English classes during this COVID situation and sometimes I have to pair students to make role-plays and I always ask them to present it to the others. Is there a way to do it with the rooms created in the breakout room or just when everybody is in the main room?

    Thanks again.
    Hope you are fine and safe.
    Hugs from distance
    William

  3. hi, I noted (when I was testing) that some of the participants froze. I know connection problem. But then what happens? They have to rejoin?

  4. i can't see the gallery view or speaker view box on the screen is this because i don,t have any contacts yet thanks

  5. Hi George, Great video. Tried to use this to organise playing electric guitars between players for a rehearsal but the sound fazed in and out. It was ok for voice but kept fading when playing an amplified guitar. Is there some clipping of the sound and how would we turn that off please? Any suggestions?

  6. does this pertain to a specific version of Zoom? I am using 3.6.5 and it has none of the features you're showing – no break out room, no ability to share screen while viewing video chat – is it because I have a chromebook and this application needs a certain format? I don't have settings to adjust my audio, my microphone sensitivity – it didn't even allow me to annotate in a shared screen view – it just literally shared my screen. HELP please, anyone.

  7. Thank you for your video. The tutorial was very helpful. I work for the NYC Department of Eduation (Educational Theatre) I would like to create a play with two or three people – since I am not able to direct the actors in person – how do think showing my play through zoom would be effective

  8. Can you have someone come directly into a breakout room. We are looking to use zoom for interviews and what to figure a way for the next candidate to join without coming into the previous interview

  9. Thank you George that was really helpful. I'm teaching online for the first time and your video was very informative. I'll be watching it again to try out some of the features that I learnt about today. Thank you 🙂

  10. 12:54 as a participant and not the host, when i click the mute button on the bottom left, why is it not muted on the right of my name? is that just to show that I"m muted or unmuted, which i have to do manually or what?

  11. Thank you,George..This video tutorial was incredibly helpful to get me up to speed to be able to host my first zoom meditation class during the co-vid-19"Shelter in Place". Your instruction was very clear, pacing was perfect, and your manner very light and easy which made navigating this new zoom territory very pleasant.

  12. George it was an excellent demo. Really appreciate the details that you provided for Zoom. I'll definitely recommend this Video to my friends. Thanks.

  13. George, terrific fast overview. I didn't know zoom has so many features. Do you ever find yourself being asked to support complex or conflict riddled meetings? And do you ever find that having an experienced executive consultant with you or alone in a project, one who could manage the technology and the meeting dialog if necessary? ……. I work with large and small groups of senior leaders and boards of directors and alliances. I've used other programs with complex features and have found that I am able to support senior leaders of ongoing committees, board and executive team repeat meetings, conflict resolution and planning meetings. Typically I have supported a number of such meetings and committees of one overall organization, preparing, creating agendas, managing highly interactive meetings and work sessions, and supporting / managing follow up, minutes, document creation / production, minutes, and action plan management.

  14. my foremat is different to yours. How do I get the speakers on so that we can hear each other? 'SHOULD' be Simple

  15. Great video, can breakout rooms contain the same people for several meetings or do they have to be manually setup up before each meeting?

  16. hey
    wanted to have a party on the 1st of April
    wanting to do it on Zoom

    could you guide me on how I can do the same

    would like the music to play in the back ground so that a few people in a a breakout room can do karaoke while the others can hear live music in the back ground.

    if I can move people from one room to the other. or even better if they can chose which room they want to go to
    await your response.
    Its going to one of its kind events if you can make it happen

    incase you would like me to call you can do so

  17. Hi can i use a softphone software and also zoom conference at the same time when i answer a call on the soft phone i can mute myself in the zoom group chat without muting the entire PC so i can continue with a call? or does the mute button mute everything?
