Flip (formerly Flipgrid) is a video discussion tool instructors can embed in a Blackboard course.
Instructors use Flip to build discussion around shared media: recorded, uploaded, and linked videos, photos, GIFs, emoji, and even files and activities from other apps. Instructors and students view and respond to each others’ contributions by adding video, audio, and comments.
Members of the UA community have free access to Flip through our Microsoft Office 365 license.
