A Join Code is a unique code that provides access to students and learners to an educator's Topic or Group. A Join Code also creates a Join Link or QR code that can be shared for easy access. Read more about how students join using the Join Code here.
What's my Join Code?
When an educator creates a new Topic, a Join Code is automatically created for the Topic. The Join Code for a Topic is typically a combination of characters, like a591dc5d or https://flipgrid.com/a591dc5d.
When creating a Group, which provides access to a collection of Topics, educators have the ability to customize the Join Code. A Group Join Code defaults to the educator's last name with random characters such as nesbit1855, or customized like fgridsupport or https://flipgrid.com/fgridsupport.
Sharing the Join Code to my Topic or Group
- Login to your educator account at admin.flipgrid.com.
- Select the blue Share button to access your Join Link and Code, as well as other ways to share your discussion.
Join Code or Link
Flipgrid works on any device! Depending on the device, learners will enter the Join Code at flipgrid.com or on the free Flipgrid app:
- PCs, Macs, & Chromebooks - Visit flipgrid.com. Educators share the Join Code for learners to enter on the homepage.
- iPads, iPhones, & Androids - Download the free Flipgrid app for iOS or Android. Educators will share the Join Code for students to enter on the app.
The Join Code also creates a Link. For example, the Join Code fgridsupport can also be accessed by the link https://flipgrid.com/fgridsupport. Copy/paste the link in emails, texts, social media, Google Classroom, or other websites to invite your learners to join!
Scan a QR Code
Educators can download/print QR codes for learners to scan on the Flipgrid app. The Flipgrid app and flipgrid.com offers a QR scanner on the homepage.
Pro Tip: if you are using Student Usernames for your Access type, each learner will have their own unique QR code to scan and automatically enter both the Join Code and student username for them. Learn more about Student IDs and QR codes.
Embed a Topic or Group
Educators can embed a Group, Topic, or even video Response into any LMS or website. Learners can watch and record videos without leaving the webpage. Learn more about embedding a Group or Topic.
Should I share the Topic or Group Join Code?
Groups and Topics can have their own access controls. Students can join a discussion by accessing a Topic directly, or by accessing a Group and selecting from all the Topics within the Group.
Sharing a Group Join Code will provide access to all the Topics within a Group with a single Join Code. When sharing access to the Group, students must meet the access control defined for the Group in the Group Settings. Read more about creating a Group here. Group Join Codes and Links are commonly customized by the educator to make it easy for learners to join. Example: https://flipgrid.com/FGrid3567
Sharing a Topic Join Code will provide access to that single Topic. When sharing access to the Topic directly, students must meet the access control defined for the Topic.
