With Flipgrid, students do not create accounts. Educators provide students a Flip Code and students enter this on the Flipgrid app or at flipgrid.com. The Flip Code also creates a shareable URL (e.g., flipgrid.com/FLIPCODE).
Flip Codes will be a random string of lowercase letters a-z and numbers 0-9. Each Grid, Topic and video has a Flip Code for direct access to that resource. Share the Grid's Flip Code and students use this throughout the year to view new Topics.
Educators can customize the Grid's Flip Code. Topics and video Flip Codes cannot be customized. Here's how to customize this:
- Access your free educator account at admin.flipgrid.com.
- Use the Actions dropdown and select Edit Grid (not to be confused with editing a topic).
- You can edit the Flip Code using lowercase letters a-z and numbers 0-9.
Remember, sharing a Topic or video Flip Code will allow students to navigate to anything on the Grid once they verify they have access via email or Student ID.
