A few weeks ago we announced that 800% more teachers joined Flipgrid this January compared to January 2016. This growth is the result of our innovative teachers finding value in Flipgrid and sharing with their friends and colleagues. We see all of your tweets, and we are extremely grateful for you. We couldn't be more excited that so many teachers are exploring new ways to connect with students and empower student voice.
Over the past few weeks we've released several updates that you may have noticed. Read on to find out more.
Our core mission is to amplify and empower student voice. What better way than connecting with classes on opposite sides of the globe. To check out Global Connections, click the Connections tab from within your Flipgrid Admin to peruse shared grids or share your own.
Custom Topic Videos
You know what will get your students talking - don't let us stand in the way! Now you can record a topic stimulus video, upload a video from your computer, or embed anything from YouTube.
Students can now follow a grid to receive a weekly or daily email notification when there is new grid activity, such as a new topic posted or new video response recorded.
Lastly, something to celebrate...
January was our biggest month ever, with over 45,000,000 seconds of student video recorded and shared. That's over 520 days of video in one month! Thank you to all our amazing teachers who empower student voice every second of every day. We promise to continue listening to you, supporting you, and releasing the features and updates you ask for on a regular basis. Stay tuned for more fun updates soon!
