How to use FlipgridAR
Download a video's QR code and scan with the Flipgrid app to watch in FlipgridAR. Make sure the QR code says "FlipgridAR" above it:
- Log into your Educator account at admin.flipgrid.com.
- Select a Grid by clicking on its name to View Topics.
- Scroll down to see a list of your Topics. Select a Topic by clicking its title to View Videos.
- Scroll down to see a list of videos. Click the "Share" button for a video and download/print the QR code.
Go to the homepage of your Flipgrid app on a compatible iOS or Android device and select the QR code option to scan the FlipgridAR code. The video will pop off the QR code and play right in front of you! Pinch to zoom in/out or select full screen, share, or download.
