Our product, Flipgrid, is a mobile application that enables students to engage in video forums. By joining a “grid”, students can upload videos of themselves responding to a prompt presented by an instructor. Additionally, students can respond to the uploaded videos of other students, either to agree with them or to refute their points. Flipgrid has the potential to supplement traditional written discussion inside the classroom. Simulating a face-to-face conversation, Flipgrid encourages more personal and thought-intensive responses, with greater integrity and commitment in student responses resulting from them verbalizing their thoughts.
