Flipgrid: Empower students' voices!

Flipgrid is a video discussion platform which allows the sharing of user-generated videos, among groups of people. It is currently used in over 50,000 classrooms to empower students and ignite discussion.

What is it?

The process is really easy. In Flipgrid, teachers post discussion topics to which students then reply using videos. Learners can pause and flip their camera while recording, add pictures or documents, trim unlimited clips and include a whiteboard, video styles, text, emoji, inking to their stories. Teachers and students can post replies to videos, like them and provide feedback to their peers. Every video along with its replies forms a Grid. Grids are the meeting place for classrooms, schools, departments or any learning community to discuss specific topics. Those Grids can be easily embedded in a variety of other platforms such as Wordpress, Moodle etc.
