Flipgrid

User-friendly video sharing platform for educational use. Teachers create a group on the website which their students then join.

Students also have the ability to reply to one another, not only the teacher, creating a wider discussion. Flipgrid Inc. is a Microsoft subsidiary.

Evaluation: Simple interface and free to use. Available in app form also, making it accessible for on the go use. Teachers can come up with their own discussion topics or use one of the thousands readily available on the website. Students can create videos of up to 5 minutes using Flipgrid with the option to edit them before posting.

Cost: Free, with registration
