Welcome to Flipgrid. As a member, you can create a video to submit to your lead in a few easy steps.

Step 1:  Locate the join information from your lead

Your lead has given you one of these ways to join the right discussion: 

  • A Join Code or a QR code: For example, "FGrid3567" or "a591dc5d." 
  • A join link or a shareable link:  For example,  https://flipgrid.com/FGrid3567 or https://flipgrid.com/a591dc5d.
  • A unique member username or guest password: This is provided by your lead in case you don’t have a school-provided email. If you're a student, we recommend you use a school email.

Important: Flipgrid works on most web browsers and mobile devices. We recommend Microsoft Edge or Google Chrome for the best web experience.  

Step 2:  Join the discussion

Go to your lead's discussion by using the link or code provided by your lead in Step 1.

  • If you were given a join link: Click the link. 
  • If you were given a join code:
    1. Go to https://flipgrid.com or open the mobile app.
    2. To enter a code, at the top right, click Enter Join Code
    3. Include the code, and click Let's go
  • If you were given a shareable link:
    • Click the link to access immediately or request access, or
    • Enter the code at the end of the link under the "Enter a join code" option.
  • If you were given a QR code: Scan the QR code with your camera or on the Flipgrid mobile app. 

Next, you'll have to log in and enter a member username and password. 

  • If your username or password are not working, double-check the case and space sensitivity. 
  • If you’re prompted to log in, choose Google if your school uses Google Classroom, Docs, and Drive.  Choose Microsoft if your school uses Word, OneDrive, or Microsoft Teams. 

Step 3:  Record and Submit 

Once you’ve joined, you’ll see your lead’s Topic, or discussion prompt. Follow the instructions and when you’re ready to record, click the blue Add Response button mceclip0.png.
