Your introductions – join our public group on Flipgrid
We are using Flipgrid, a video discussion board system, to introduce ourselves to one another. Flipgrid is free for educators and can be used independently of an LMS such as Canvas or Blackboard. It is a free tool that can be safely used in your own exchanges.
WHAT TO DO:
In 90 seconds or less:
- Tell us in a few words who you are and where you come from. What would you like to learn in this course?
- Show us something that will help us remember you (e.g., something in your office or home that is special to you or typical of your culture).
- What are you most looking forward to in this course? What are you most concerned about? What is the subject area that you are interested in for your virtual exchange?
- When you are finished, find 2 other videos on the grid and record replies to them.
To record a video, participants will verify their email using Microsoft or Google. You can record on your phone (via a mobile Flipgrid application) or your computer, just make sure that you have audio!
This is what a sample grid looks like:
To add you recording simply press a green plus. Your recording will be available only after you have published it.
