The Shorts integration in Wakelet is for educators only.
At this time, Flipgrid Shorts inside Wakelet is for educator use only. We are working on powerful updates for students. In the meantime, any Flipgrid video can be embedded in Wakelet right now! Just copy/paste the share link from your Flipgrid educator account into any Wakelet collection.
What does the integration let me do?
The Wakelet + Flipgrid integration allows you to record videos directly into a Wakelet collection using the new Flipgrid Shorts Camera.
Where can I use the new Flipgrid Shorts Camera on Wakelet?
Shorts currently works with Chrome and Firefox! You can launch the Flipgrid Shorts Camera in your Wakelet collection on any computer with a webcam!
Why is it asking me to sign up for Flipgrid when I want to add a video?
You will initially need to sign up or log in to Flipgrid to link your Wakelet account. Once linked, Flipgrid videos recorded in Wakelet will be stored in Flipgrid. You can access and delete your videos from the Flipgrid Educator Dashboard via the “Shorts” tab.
I’m having difficulties logging in to use Flipgrid Video on Wakelet - what shall I do?
Try logging out of Wakelet and then logging in again. This usually helps! If you continue to have issues you may have to clear your cookies on shorts.flipgrid.com - email firstname.lastname@example.org if you need any assistance with this or that still doesn’t work.
If I delete a video on Wakelet will it delete on Flipgrid?
No. You will need to go to your Flipgrid Shorts account to delete the videos. Once they are deleted they will no longer show on Wakelet, however you will still want to delete the empty video item in your Wakelet collection.
I’ve logged in to my Flipgrid account but don’t see my videos. Where are they?
Make sure you’ve signed in to Flipgrid with the same email address associated with your Wakelet account. Your videos will appear under the “Shorts” tab of the Educator Admin.
How long can a Shorts video be?
You can create a 3 minute long video using the Flipgrid Shorts camera on Wakelet.
Can my students use the integration?
No. This integration is just for you, the educator! If you want your students to record videos from Wakelet, simply set up a Flipgrid Topic and paste the link in your collection!
