What is a breakout room?
Breakout rooms are multiple sub-rooms within an Adobe Connect meeting where a host can assign participants to select rooms. Breakout rooms are useful when splitting up a large group into segmented smaller groups, helping to drive discussion and brainstorming to achieve the goal or objective of the online session.
Examples of why you would use a breakout room: Interviews, focus groups, discussion topics, workshop training, and group projects.

Being in the conferencing industry, I know many people who have the ability to work anywhere and everywhere (including myself!). As long as WiFi is available, it is easily manageable to complete everyday tasks. But an internet connection doesn't necessarily mean we get our work done efficiently or at all. Sometimes being disconnected from the team is a huge hindrance, and when you need to collaborate to move a project forward, communicating remotely can get messy without the proper process and tools in place.
To help make it easier for those who have flexible work schedules, there are many new tools that help get the job done. Take a look at the below 13 tools for greater organization, management & communication that we've compiled based on the Inbound.org discussion boards for those who work from home!
Do you find yourself logging into online events, such as team meetings, training sessions or marketing webinars and becoming so distracted with email, social media or your latest project that you find yourself no longer paying attention?
If this happens to you, you probably think to yourself after the session has ended that you just wasted your time because you weren't able to take away something useful.
Sure, sometimes you lose focus because the speaker is just dreadful, or the meeting topic really doesn't apply to you. But for those times that you know your presence is required or you're hoping to take away something useful, it's up to you to empower yourself to take the necessary steps to set yourself up for success.

Did you know that a webinar is short for Web-based seminar? A Webinar is a presentation, lecture, workshop or seminar that is transmitted over the web using a web conferencing platform. The key feature of a Webinar is its interactive elements -- or the ability to give, receive, and discuss information.
Way too many businesses call their online events a webinar, when in reality it's a Webcast! A webcast is when data is transmitted one way and does not allow interaction between the presenter and the audience. Generally, if you attend an online presentation where the host/speaker just, well... speaks at you-- you're at a webcast.
Webinars are a great way to generate awareness around your product, company, idea, event, build relationships with prospects or existing clients and generate new leads through engagement. Webcasts are a great way to bore your audience because you are not interacting with the very people you are trying to sell or retain!
