Hi. I have a student who says he cannot be the Flipgrid assignment. I'm assuming now that others cannot either since no one has submitted it. I can see it it in "Student View" though. I have it installed exactly the same way I did last semester. When I click "Flipgrid" in the navigation, it appears for me in "Student View." I can also see it when I click the individual assignment.

Is there something that would prohibit students from seeing this that I am not thinking about?

Thanks.

Tara,  I don't use Flipgrid, but I did some reading about it and it's a very cool program.  This is a long shot, but do you have "Video Moderation" turned on?  It seems that feature only makes videos visible to students after they are moderated.  Just a stab in the dark.

Hi, Tara - I am not sure in which class the student is having issues. I just looked at your MCOM 5 class where you have a Flipgrid assignment. All is working beautifully. In fact, two students have submitted videos. So very cool, by the way!

As you may know, Flash is required for FlipGrid to work. It could be that the student doesn't have Flash enabled in his browser. Here are instructions on how to enable Flash in Chrome and enable Flash in Firefox to give to students.

 

For those new to FlipGrid, I thought I'd share some info.

How to Use FlipGrid as a Student in Canvas

Michelle Pacansky-Brock made a couple of great videos showing students how to participate in a FlipGrid discussion in Canvaseither with their computer and a webcam:

Or students can participate with their smartphone and the Canvas Student app (AndroidApple) and FlipGrid app (AndroidApple) installed:

 

These videos can help students not only see how to successfully use FlipGrid but also help assuage any fears some may have about recording video.

Vivie:

That's probably it. I checked Aaron's suggestion and I don't have subject or video moderation on. I've sent those links to the student to check, but also provided him with a workaround in case they don't.

Thank you!

Good one Vivie.  Ah, it’s time for developers to give up Flash.  It’s been a pain for some time.  That makes sense.  And since Apple mobile devices don’t support Flash it’s even more of a pain.
