Does my corporation have to purchase flip grid or can I get a classroom version in order for it to work with Canvas?
Hello! My name is Kevin from the Flipgrid team. I'm happy to answer any questions on this!
We do not charge for any LTI integration with Canvas. Flipgrid has two versions
Both versions can be LTI integrated with Canvas. With Flipgrid One, you are just restricted to that 1 free grid. Full details on how to integrate can be found at Integrations — Flipgrid Resources
The vast majority of our users are educational and non-profits but many corporations find value out of Flipgrid and are welcome to sign up as well.
Reach out with any questions. Thanks!
Hello Kathy Benner...
This sounds like a question that should be asked to the people at Flipgrid. When I've integrated 3rd party LTIs with Canvas, I usually reach out to the maker of the LTI to see if there is a cost associated with it or not. Some are free, but some do have either a one-time fee or even a subscription fee to use. I have found the following websites for you that may be of help:
I hope this information is of some help to you, Kathy.
Thank you for your reply! I will look into that with Flipgrid today. There are a lot of people talking about using it with Canvas on Twitter, but nobody is really say what version they are using.
Thanks again for your Help!
Kevin Soran thank you so much for this information! It is of much help moving forward. I will pass this along to other teachers in my building that had the same question!
Hi Kevin Soran,
Do you know if there is a way to set Flipgrid so students do not need to enter there names every time they submit a video? It is super annoying, and I can find any info.
Hi Tracie Bosket,
We actually do this automatically for our Canvas users! If your grid is integrated with Canvas and your students are accessing Flipgrid from within your Canvas course, it will auto-fill the first name, last name, and email with their correct credentials. Just make sure they are accessing from within the Canvas course (not Flipgrid stand-alone).
Let me know if you have any questions on this!
Oh sweet! I integrated it, so I'm going to try it right now...
This totally works
Next question; I have a transcript on my video, but as a student I cannot see the transcript. Do you know how to make the transcript visible to students?
By default, transcripts are turned off from student view. You can simply activate this under your Grid settings:
Educators can edit these auto-transcripts within their Educator Admin. Students can include their own custom transcripts by linking to a Google doc or other URL on the final submission step. We are looking into allowing students to edit their transcripts in the future.
Note - as of yesterday, there is a known issue with transcripts not showing up for students. This is due to us upgrading all our accessibility features over the next week. We improved the video playback keyboard functions to meet the latest requirements. Plus, we will be adding Closed Captioned transcripts for the videos. So stay tuned on that in the next couple weeks!
Oh, that is great to hear. I am going to present Flipgrid at our DE Summit in January. So I should be able to demo the accessibility portion. Thanks Kevin Soran
