What is Flipgrid?

Flipgrid is a video-based social learning platform, in which students and teaching staff can record video or audio files. The main difference between Flipgrid and other video-based tools in that it allows students and teaching staff to respond to each other’s videos. They can respond each other’s videos by typing something or recording another video.

Flipgrid is owned by Microsoft and is part of Office 365. This means that in the same way you can access Word, Excel and OneNote, you will be able to access FlipGrid using your UQ login and credentials. 

It is important to highlight that the platform is completely free and very user friendly. There are many tools and settings available, so everything is quite straightforward.
