Flipgrid (now Flip) is a video-based discussion community that helps teachers engage every student in the classroom online with videos. To get started, teachers can create a topic as an assignment and model the assignment by recording a video. Students who are given this assignment can respond with a text message or a video recording. When they are recording a video, students can add all kinds of effects, such as text, emoji, image, drawing, frame and filter to their video. Unlike other video sharing platforms, teachers can assess students’ video assignments very easily and provide immediate feedback to their students. 

In this sharing session, Dr Zou Di Daisy would share practical examples of how Flipgrid could be used for rapport building, peer assessment and reflection. In addition, she would also give a step-by-step demonstration on how to create Flipgrid activities.
