Flipgrid is a video discussion platform from Microsoft that helps educators see and hear from every student in class and foster fun and supportive social learning. In Flipgrid, educators can post discussion prompts and students respond with short videos, whether they are learning in class or at home.

Step by Step Guide

Step 2: Create a Topic

To create Topic, add the Topic Title and prompt for your students.  

A Topic is a discussion prompt for your students! Just write a prompt and include anything you would like your students to review prior to responding, such as videos and links. Topic Media is a good way to add reference material links, an image, or GIF to your topic.

Step 3: Set Access and Share

Flipgrid: Share a Topic

After creating your Topic, choose how learners will access it. Share your Topic by using one of the share buttons or copy and paste the unique Join Code with your learners in a different platform, such as email.

After entering your Join Code, learners gain access by logging in via email or username. Your students can respond to your Topic with a short video, using our fun, social media style camera. Students can watch and comment on videos from peers, with you as the educator in complete control.
