Canvas: How do I add Flipgrid to my sidebar?

If you haven't already, please read our installation guide first to set up Flipgrid in Canvas before proceeding.

The Canvas integration used to show Flipgrid in the Course sidebar by default. If students used this to submit their videos, however, the videos wouldn't appear in SpeedGrader. To ensure students enter Flipgrid via the Canvas Assignments, thus ensuring their responses appear in SpeedGrader, we've altered the integration to hide Flipgrid from the sidebar.

If you'd still like to show Flipgrid in the sidebar on Canvas:

  1. Select Settings from the navigation menu on the left, and then the Navigation tab at the top
  2. Click and drag Flipgrid from the 'hidden' list at the bottom to the 'visible' list at the top
  3. Click Save to update the sidebar
