Flipgrid is a video discussion platform that makes teaching and learning more personal, fun, and engaging to your students. Flipgrid is now a part of Microsoft, and just like Office 365, Flipgrid is now free for all educators and students. Whether students are working on personalized goals or differentiated activities to foster growth, as faculty you can provide opportunities for students to capture understanding of the course material and allow their thinking to be visible using Flipgrid.

As an instructor, you will post a discussion prompt or question to which your students will respond in video format. You and the other students and your class will be able to send responses via video as a way to virtually create a face-to-face discussion.
