How can I deliver an online session, live, to students where I want the students to work in group of 5 or 6?
Use Blackboard Collaborate Ultra found under ‘Tools’ on your module. Please refer to the ‘How to create a session in Collaborate’ guide. To facilitate
small group collaboration, you can create breakout groups that are separate from the main room and assign attendees to them
share content
1. Open the Share Content panel from the Collaborate panel.
2. Select Breakout Groups.
3. Assign groups. Select Randomly assign or Custom assignment.

Randomly assign: Collaborate creates groups and randomly assigns attendees for you.
Randomly assign is only available when there are four or more people are in the room.
If you want to be in a group, select Include moderators in group assignment.
You can change how many attendees are in each group. Select the number of groups from the Number
of Groups menu.
If you don’t like how the attendees are grouped, select Reassign attendees.
Custom assignment: Create your own groups.
Assign attendees to a group. You can select the attendee’s options menu and select the group. You can
also select the attendee and drag them to the right group.
Select Create a new group to add more groups.
You can create up to 20 groups. Breakout groups is only available in sessions with 250 or fewer
attendees. There is no limit to the number of attendees you can put in each group. However, we
recommend spreading attendees out evenly over your groups.
Optionally, select Allow attendees to switch groups, if you want attendees to be able to move to another
group on their own. Select Start.
