Educators: Update your group permissions and ask your student to use a school email address

When your students use Flipgrid at school, they must use a school email address to have the full Flipgrid experience.  

If your students are using personal email addresses for your groups, they’ll receive a message to let them know they need a school email address. To let your students keep participating, add them with a school email address. Community members from other learning communities may use their personal account. 

 

Update your group permissions 

Check that your students have all been invited to your group with a school email address. Under “Manage members,” remove any non-school email addresses and add students with their school email address under the “Email or domain” or “Google Classroom” options.
