Flipgrid—A New Way to View Online Content

teaching with technology
Flipgrid (https://info.flipgrid.com) is a new collaboration system that's drawing quite a bit of interest in education circles as of late. Flipgrid provides an alternative way of displaying content from the traditional LMS discussion forum. An LMS forum is linear, with each posting falling below the prior one in a tree. Flipgrid displays postings in a grid pattern on a single page. Moreover, Flipgrid is designed for video posts, whereas the LMS forum is designed for text postings. Finally, the presentation is closer to what students are used to seeing on a webpage, with different elements arranged together in an appealing design. The LMS creates a very artificial presentation that is foreign to most viewers as it isolates each contribution from the other in an open and close view.
