Flipgrid

Video Discussion Platform

What is Flipgrid?

Flipgrid is a website that allows teachers to create "grids" of short discussion-style questions that students respond to through recorded videos. Each grid is effectively a message board where teachers can pose a question and their students can post 90-second video responses that appear in a tiled "grid" display. Grids can be classes, sections, groups of students, research groups, faculty groups, or any collection of users interested in a common strand of questions. Each grid can hold an unlimited number of questions, and each question can hold an unlimited number of responses. Questions are short, text-based prompts (think Twitter) that can include basic formatting (such as bold, italic) and links to websites or documents.

How Can Teachers Use it?


Flipgrid allows students to quickly articulate their stance on a issue using a platform similar to popular social media apps like Snapchat and Instagram. It incorporates the storytelling function of these platforms while fostering connectivity among peers from different backgrounds and locations.


Flipgrid also provides a space for insular student sharing apart from larger social media arenas.
