With Flipgrid, only educators starting their own discussion need an account. Start by signing up for free at flipgrid.com and then follow these easy steps!
- Login - Login to the Educator Dashboard (admin.flipgrid.com). Educators on mobile devices also login here, not on the app. (Add the Educator Dashboard as an app icon)
- Create a Grid - A Grid is a classroom or community of learners. Name it after a class and set the security settings. Note the auto-generated Flip Code because this is how students will access the Grid!
- Add Topics - Topics are the questions or themes students respond to. Every Educator can add unlimited Topics and include videos, images, documents, or other optional resources.
- Share with students - Students do not create accounts on Flipgrid. Simply share the Flip Code with students and have them input the code at flipgrid.com (if on a computer) or on the free Flipgrid app (if on mobile devices). Students click the green plus button to record their video!
