What is Flipgrid?

Flipgrid is a video-based web discussion platform that instructors and students can use within their Canvas sites to conduct discussions. This app works much like Canvas' built-in discussion tool, except users make video recordings of themselves for their discussion posts instead of typing out written discussion posts and responses to others' posts.

Why use it?

  • Easy integration into Canvas courses.
  • If desired, you can create videos with no sound - ASL friendly!
  • Offer your students a more intimate, engaging peer-to-peer discussion experience than a traditional discussion forum. It's also a great discussion and video sharing forum for FSU organization sites.
  • Guest mode feature allows you to invite guest speakers into discussions.
  • Available on any device, anywhere: laptops (including Chromebooks), tablets (Microsoft Surface, iPad, and others), and other mobile devices (iPhones and any Android devices). Flipgrid has a free Windows 10 app, iOS app, and Android app so you and your students can post and respond to each other on-the-go!

The introductory video below covers the basics of using Flipgrid in Canvas, including how to install Flipgrid in your Canvas site, creating Flipgrid discussion assignments, and grading Flipgrid assignments in SpeedGrader. You can also refer to Flipgrid's Canvas LTI Integration resource for directions to install Flipgrid in your Canvas site.
