A common confusion for new educators of Flipgrid is a Grid vs a Topic. Lets clear that up!
Grid = classroom or learning community.
Adjust any security/privacy settings and customize the look of the Grid. Create a Grid for each class, school-wide, or a global connection! There are 3 options to secure your Grid:
- School Email Domain - If your students have school emails, use this option for your Grid. Students enter the Flip Code and verify their email using Microsoft or Google.
- Student ID List - If your students don't have emails, use this option. Students enter the Flip Code and input their Student ID #, or scan a QR code for verification.
- PLC and Public - Allow anyone to view videos with just the Flip Code. To record a video, participants verify their email address via Microsoft or Google, including personal @outlook.com and @gmail.com emails.
Topics = discussion questions or prompts.
Topics can simply be text-based or include a resource such as image, video, giphy, emoji, and attachment. Check out the Topic Discovery Library to find ready-made topics and add right to the Grid!
All educators can add unlimited Topics to their Grids. Sharing a Grid with someone will give them access to everything on the Grid.
