In the video, Andrew Bottomley discusses how he sets up Microsoft Teams to make breakout groups for students during their online class. This allows students to meet in their groups virtually during their class time. As an early adopter to Teams, Andrew shows how uses Team Channels to create multiple ways to split up his class, and talks about his goals when he divides classes into Breakout Groups.

This is part of a series of posts collected by the TLTC and Faculty Center to share ideas and tools that have been helpful in the shift is teaching during the Spring 2020 semester.  If you are interested in sharing either a tool that you have found very useful or a method that you are now using in your courses, we would love to hear from you. Send your video or brief description to Chilton Reynolds and we will post it as a part of this series.
