Flipgrid allows students to only submit videos, which requires the device to have a camera and microphone. Our team is exploring other options that won't require a camera such as audio-only mode. Submit a request for an audio-only mode and to receive any updates!
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.
