Flippity

Principal function(s): Flashcard creators

Flippity is a free online tool that allows you to create interactive flashcards or games, based on Google Spreadsheets. Templates are provided so that teachers only need to access the website and choose the spreadsheet they like. Each spreadsheet comes with a set of instructions that will explain how to turn the document into pedagogically useful material for your lessons and customise it. You also have the option to create materials directly in your browser if you don't want to use your Google account, but the options are more limited. There is an extensive troubleshooting page. Evaluation: Flippity is a straightforward tool to make classes more interactive and fun. It is easy to use and has a wide range of activities to choose from.

Cost: Free

Respect for privacy Does the tool require registration? Who can see my data? Can I remain anonymous?

High. Flippity’s privacy policy is very simple: no personal data is abused, misused, shared or sold since they do not have any user information in the first place. It can only access data publicly published on Google Drive. No data ever gets uploaded, downloaded, saved or stored on Flippity services and, as a consequence, deleting the spreadsheet upon which Flippity is operating means deleting all the data Flippity can access. Flippity’s privacy policy does not elaborate on security. It does not mention compliance with the GDPR. See more here and here.
