Yes! The 'Mic only' option lets students turn the camera off, so only their voice is recorded via the microphone. Please see this complete guide for more details.
If students don't have a camera, they can still import a video a Flipgrid. Record a video on another program, such as Screencastify, Zoom, or Chatterpix.
Even with video, students don't need to show their faces in the video! Students can use a board to cover the camera, use stickers, and other creative ways to submit audio-only videos! Students can also include text in their videos.
NOTE - features below are only available on iOS and Android apps, Chrome, Firefox, and the new Microsoft Edge. They are not available on Safari, old Edge, or IE.
Blackboard & Whiteboard Mode
The Flipgrid camera provides whiteboard and blackboard mode. Students can then draw, add stickers, or simply record a video with just audio - no image needed!
Students can also add filters to their videos. One of the filters is pixel mode which distorts the image so it doesn't show any details.
