4/7 Increase in Zoom Breakout Rooms Update

On Wednesday, April 7th, between 10:00 PM and 11:00 PM CT, UIC's Zoom breakout room settings will be updated, allowing Zoom sessions to be split into up to 100 breakout rooms (previously limited to 50). No downtime is expected during this update.

Breakout rooms are enabled by default for all UIC Zoom accounts and allow hosts to split Zoom meetings into smaller group sessions. Learn how to configure Zoom Breakout Rooms.

To access this expanded capability, Zoom meeting host accounts must be updated to at least version 5.2 (released in August 2020). Learn how you can check if your Zoom client is up to date.
