The first topic in our Online Learning Webinar series was Flipgrid, a video collaboration tool created and pioneered at the University of Minnesota. Flipgrid allows instructors to interact with students through short and informative self-created video clips. The goal of Flipgrid is to boost community and collaboration.
On Wednesday, Kevin Soran of Flipgrid presented the tool to interested faculty through an Adobe Connect session. A recording of the session can be viewed here.
Additionally, the Distance Learning team created a publicly available Canvas site and embedded a Flipgrid to showcase the tool and to allow faculty to test the platform. We invite you to visit the site and post a response to the grid.
If you are interested in piloting Flipgrid in your classroom, please reach out to us firstname.lastname@example.org. Look for the next Online Learning Webinar in the first week of September. Check this site later in the month for more information on the topic and specifics.
