Flipgrid allows students to only submit videos which requires a camera and microphone. Our team is exploring other options which won't require a camera such as audio only - submit a request for this to receive any updates!
If students don't have a camera, they can still import a video a Flipgrid. Use another program such as screencastify, chatterpix, or record audio and use another program to conver this to a video.
Even with video, students can submit videos that don't have their face in the video. So you can be creative 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 video. One of the filters is pixel mode which distorts the image so it doesn't show any details.
