I love using Flipgrid with my students especially during remote learning but I am having issues integrating into Canvas. Each time I try I get this weird pink box which doesn't allow me to select my course within Flipgrid.
What should I do?
Flipgrid has been having issues this week. Earlier today, I received this email from Flipgrid.
To our Flipgrid community -
Today and throughout this week Flipgrid experienced issues impacting your ability to use the service. We sincerely apologize for this disruption.

This might be the source of some of your problems.
I would check the structure of the interface and possibly redo it- by that I mean
go through settings- apps. Flipgrid- do things look kosher- only 1 instance of flipgrid, and it has values for the key and code values?
then go check from the flipgrid side- educator dashboard- do you see the group that would correspond to your course? does it look valid?
I am wondering based upon the message if maybe you deleted the course group accidentally? or it got corrupted somehow?
If I am wrong and it looks good...
You should be able to delete the connection from either the Canvas side through settings.apps or the Flipgrid side- not sure which ...do that and restart the integration process.
And do you have a successful connection in another course...that would prove something right? That its not a problem with your user roles or something...
I can tell you I dont see that red box...so something is not working for you that works for me...good luck!
