Flipgrid is a web-based tool used to create video-based discussion boards. Instructors post a question or prompt. Students respond by posting a 90-second video response. Students create their video using a computer, tablet or phone with web camera. Free teacher accounts are limited to one grid but topics and student responses are unlimited. The Flipgrid website has excellent suggestions for using the product in different content areas. Flipgrids can be shared by URL link.
