Flipgrid in Canvas (Instructors)

Flipgrid is a Cloud Service that allows instructors to create “grids” to help facilitate video discussions. Instructors can post questions on each grid (called topics) and request their students to post video responses that appear tiled under the grid. Instructors like Flipgrid as it allows students to explain or show their learning using video.Instructors also like that Flipgrid takes these responses and places them in a grid for easy viewing and access by the instructor and other students.

There are also accessibility issues, please review the Flipgrid Accessibility Requirements created by DSS explaining some limitations and that using FlipGrid might not be possible if you have students that need accommodations.
