FlipgridTM is simple.

Teachers create grids of short discussion-style questions that students respond to through recorded videos. Flipgrid boosts community and social presence in face-to-face, hybrid, and online classrooms, as well as enterprise organizations around the world.

Teachers create grids of questions

Create grids and add questions

Grids can be classes, sections, groups of students, research groups, faculty groups, or any collection of users interested in a common strand of questions. Each grid can hold an unlimited number of questions, and each question can hold an unlimited number of video responses.

Questions are short, text-based prompts (think Twitter™) that can include basic formatting (e.g., bold, italic) and links to websites or documents.

Teachers pay once. Unlimited students.

Flipgrid does not use student accounts. You create the grid (i.e., a class or group of students), post as many questions as you like, and collect as many student response videos as you can. Therefore, there is only one license...your license.

Simple admin tools

Flipgrid uses a streamlined single-page admin tool for you to create, manage, and share your grids with students and colleagues. Spend a minute to explore the admin and it will be second nature. See for yourself below. . .

In the Flipgrid Admin you can set a grid’s Color Style (background and highlight colors), Moderation (if you want to approve videos before they are posted), Privacy (password-protected or not), Social Links (whether videos can be shared outside of Flipgrid on blogs, Facebook, or Twitter), Activity (whether the grid is live or in development), and Notifications (if you’d like to receive emails when students respond).


You can make your grids feel at home by styling them with your university or school colors, or select a combined background and highlight color that fits your grid theme. Change it up as often as you want and have fun!

What educators are saying...

Flipgrid gives my students a way to connect their voices across the entire school and share their stories with the world. Students love creating these short videos via the easy-to-use interface, and I love the window that the videos give me into each student's thoughts.Andy Plemmons, School Librarian/Media Specialist, David C. Barrow Elementary, Athens, GA Read full review

I have reviewed, used, and recommended hundreds of learning technology tools during the past three decades; I have even designed a couple myself. Unfortunately, far too few approach the sheer simplicity, pedagogical beauty, and inherent usability of Flipgrid.Dr. Curt Bonk, Professor of Instructional Systems Technology, Indiana University

Flipgrid has given my students a place to come together to share their thoughts, ideas, and most of all...their voices. They love how they have can capture themselves within the video boxes and see their friends as well. It has also given our school community a place to collaborate and connect with various projects.Shannon McClintock Miller, Van Meter Community School District Teacher Librarian, Iowa

Using Flipgrid in my online class has provided a tool to engage and connect with my students in the course. I have also discovered that through the use of Flipgrid, and engagement in the course, the retention of students in my courses have improved. Flipgrid provides an enriched learning experience through video and spoken words rather than text responses in a discussion board.Dr. Karen Lankish, Professor and Program Director of Health Information Systems Technology, University of Cincinnati Clermont

As our educational environment changes so must our assessment, and introducing new forms of assessment can only help teachers be more effective in the classroom. Flipgrid is a service that is not to be missed. The App and service are simple to use for both students and teachers, and gives teachers a new tool for accurate real time assessment. Flipgrid has also allowed me to assess my students’ use of my ‘flipped classroom’ in real time.Richard Perry, ELA teacher, Apple Distinguished Educator, Sanford H. Calhoun High School, Merrick, NY Read full review

Students respond with video

Flipgrid brings the back row to the front

Students can follow your grids and receive email updates when new questions are added. In addition, you can email a link to the grid or each individual question with ease. When students respond they snap a thumbnail photo (with multiple filter options to have a little fun and get aligned with the webcam), record their video response (up to 90 seconds) as many times as they need, and submit their video.

No student accounts required

With Flipgrid’s unique combination of moderation, privacy, and password-protection controlled by you, the teacher, students can focus on thinking and reflecting, rather than trying to remember their account info. We handle the security and leave the privacy to you.

Flipgrid. Now iPad friendly.

The video responses that have been recorded, viewed, liked, and shared in Flipgrid are now available on the iPad. Your Flipgrid communities can record their thoughts in the app and instantly view their videos in the browser (and vice versa, of course).

In addition, your students can use the rear camera on the iPad to reflect on their environment, record skit videos with multiple students, explain STEM principles, and be more creative with their responses.

Flipgrid automatically adapts to your class size

Whether you have 10 students in a graduate course, 25 students in a high school class, or 1,000+ students in a MOOC, Flipgrid is ready to maximize social presence with your students and automatically adapts to the number of response videos in each question.

Students have several ways to connect with their personal videos and those of their peers: by likes and direct links, as well as Twitter, Blog, and Facebook integration. Remember, teachers set whether videos can be shared outside of Flipgrid if privacy is a concern. It’s entirely up to you.

With Flipgrid’s unique hashtag system for grids, questions, and individual responses (i.e., every item receives its own unique URL), integrating Flipgrid into any learner management system is as easy as posting a link. In other words, if your system supports links, it supports Flipgrid.

Flipgrid isn't just for the classroom

Flipgrid is currently being used by design teams, in religious settings, in online research projects, at businesses and government offices for collaboration, at weddings, by architects, and in numerous community groups around the world. And we are just getting started. . .

Flipgrid was designed by teachers, for teachers.

Designed, developed, and researched
at the University of Minnesota.
