Flipgrid focuses on short videos to help students practice being concise & articulate. Plus, the Snapchat/YouTube generation ends up engaging better with short videos!
The default video length will always be 90 seconds, but educators can adjust this from 15 seconds up to 5 minutes:
- Access your educator account at admin.flipgrid.com to visit your main My Grids page.
- Select a Grid by clicking on its name to View Topics.
- Scroll down to see a list of your Topics. Use the Actions menu and select Edit Topic (not to be confused with editing a Grid)
- In section 1. Topic Details, edit the Video Response Time.
Try using the 15 second time limit for elevator pitches. Or 45 seconds to practice for the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). 2 minutes is perfect for students practicing for AP World Language exams. And 5 minutes is great for short presentations!
