Flipgrid - How students can access your Grid School Email Domain or Student ID List

Two ways you can have your students access your grid in Flipgrid is to choose the correct community type. There are three community types School Email Domain, Student ID List, and PLCs and Public Grids (this is for participants over 16 and intended for your network).

The first option is by School Email Domain. In this option, you will need to enter everything after the @ symbol for how students access their email accounts. In the district where I work the domain is student.methacton.org.

The second option is a Student ID List in which you can upload a CSV file or manually add them. You will not need to add their actual name if you do not wish to. All that is needed is that you use at least two characters (letters, numbers, symbols). If blank, a random ID will be generated.

Embedded below is a GIF followed by a 3 minute and 25 second YouTube tutorial.

Take care,
