How can I embed Flipgrid within StageAgent?
Flipgrid is a platform that allows educators to start discussions or assignments where students respond in a video. Teachers can then provide feedback and/or allow students to give feedback to each other. If you do not currently have a FlipGrid account, you can sign up for one here.
On the Settings page in your group management section, you can add your FlipGrid teacher and student URLs. Once added, you should then see a tab labeled 'FlipGrid Dashboard' in your group management section. On this page you can view you FlipGrid Teacher Dashboard where you can monitor and moderate student responses as they are submitted. When your students sign in on StageAgent for Schools, they will see the a link to their class grid under PARTICIPATE in the top navigation. On this page, they can then view associated topics and can record their videos.
