Flipgrid videos are all recorded, or asynchronous, videos. If you want to go live, or synchronous video chat, you can embed YouTube live into Flipgrid Topics!
The dynamic duo, Kristin and Joe Merrill, found this hidden gem and have provided instructions on how to do this:
Follow these simple steps:
- Create a YouTube Live event & copy the event’s URL
- Create your topic on Flipgrid & add your YouTube’s URL into the Topic Focus
- When ready, launch your live stream on YouTube & deliver your content to students in real time!
Students can respond to your presentation at any point during the LIVE video or after, they just need to tap that green plus. They can also restart your LIVE presentation by clicking into that embedded YouTube video in the Topic!
