Hide, review, and approve member videos

Social learning is a powerful way to engage students which is why Flipgrid defaults videos to be seen by all learners in a Topic! Flipgrid also offers a Group lead moderation feature which allows you to approve all member activity before it's shared with other Group members in the Topic.

Turn on Approve member activity under Topic settings. Only the Group lead and co-leads will be able to view submitted videos until they choose to make them active in the Topic. 

  1. Access your educator account at admin.flipgrid.com.
  2. From your Dashboard page, go to the Topics tab mceclip0.pnglocate your Topic
