How to use Flipgrid to send out a personalized video to your students/families.

If you are interested in sharing a video with your students/families, a great site to use for this would be Flipgrid. 

You can create a video anywhere from 15 seconds to 10 minutes and while you can use Flipgrid with your class to respond, you do not have to.

A few quick tips.
  • Log in to Flipgrid 
  • Go through the steps of creating your Grid
    • name it whatever works for you
  • You will now need to create your topic
  • Name the topic what you would like
  • Look to the right and select anywhere from 15 seconds to 10 minutes
  • Type in whatever you need for the prompt (in the example below I just used hi because no-one but you will see the information in the Grid or topic)
  • Make sure to then select create topic
  • A pop up will occur letting you know that your topic has been created.
    • You can close that pop-up and scroll down and look for record a response.
    • Choose the green +
  • Record your response
    • click the arrow when previewing the video
    • take a selfie
    • rename your name (if applicable)
  • Select Submit video and then complete
  • You will now see the ability to send the video (look for a rocket - see below)

  • Choose the rocket, copy the URL, I recommend openning an Incognito Window and pasting it in there (this shows what the video would look like for someone like a family member).
  • You are now ready to share the video where you would like to.
  • Of course there are so many uses for Flipgrid, but this is a great way to start! 

  • Embedded below is a 2 minute and 5 second YouTube tutorial.

    Take care,
