Video in Breakout Sessions

Would like to have video in addition to audio in breakout sessions.

    WebEx Training is sorely lacking in video conferencing features. We know it can be implemented since it exists in WebEx Meetings.

    WebEx Training seems like an afterthought and not a polished product. Hope to see equivalent features offered soon.

    Breakout webcams is a feature sorely needed. Prioritize this please.

    I would completely agree that Webex Training needs a significant upgrade. It is much more expensive than meetings but it seems features get added to meetings but not to Training. Example - sharing sound from Desktop, now video in breakout. Or can we simply take Meetings and add some of the functionality we need for training delivery. Very Disappointing.

    This shows as shipped, but clearly it has not shipped in Webex Training. This is incredibly disheartening as Webex Training is much better for training sessions than Webex Meetings, but is more or less unusable for trainings with breakout sessions where you want people to, for example, role play a sales call together. And those are sessions where I really want all of the other functionality of Webex Training--not the less complete Webex Meetings functionality. So frustrating.

    Video is available for breakout rooms in Webex Meetings 40.9, but not the much more expensive Webex Training... Anyone else feel Training is in need of a major user experience improvment?

    Yes, I think we all shipped Webex Meetings and a full-featured breakout experience :-)

    Lack of video in breakout sessions are considered a deal-breaker for virtual events. Zoom is also in our future if this feature is not available soon.

    Small group face to face is essential. I’m about to switch to using Zoom because this feature is not offered.

    YES -- please.

    I agree to this. Also when this feature will be available in Meetings it will be even more useful.

    Video cameras in the Training Center breakout rooms is a must have. For virtual training it is important for participants and instructors to be able to see each other in the breakout rooms. Our clients are requiring it. We have been a client for over 10 years and will have to use Adobe Connect and Zoom to be able to offer this feature to our clients and students of virtual training. It is important to include the video camera in the breakout rooms in the Training Center.

    We definitely need cameras in the breakout rooms for Training Center. We're finding clients are demanding it, and it's a need that can be met by Adobe Connect, Zoom, and others. We're a 10+ year Webex client and are getting ready to move away from it due to the lack of cameras in the breakouts

    Our students in STEM courses and language classes will really benefit from video in the breakout sessions.
