 Flipgrid is a website for creating asynchronous video discussions with your students. With Flipgrid, students can submit short video responses for icebreaker activities, individual responses, discussion topics, and even oral reports or exams. Create a Topic in Flipgrid (using a Canvas Assignment) and directly respond to student videos or have students reply to one another. Flipgrid is an efficient way to promote engagement and community. You can also use the SpeedGrader in Canvas to grade student submissions.
