About this article
This article provides an overview of the Flipgrid video chat tool. It is intended for instructors and students.
Flipgrid is a free, online video chat tool from Microsoft that allows groups of people to discuss a specific topic asynchronously by exchanging short, 90-second videos captured using their computer or mobile device. Used in an educational context, instructors create a discussion forum or grid, add one or more topics to the grid, and invite their students to post recorded video responses to those topics using a built-in video recording tool. Similar to threaded, text-based discussions, instructors and other students can then view and react to posted videos.
