Creating a Flipgrid Group

Flipgrid Groups allow you to organize your Topics in to collections by course or even course themes. Each Group can contain multiple Topics and provide a quick overview of activity in the Group. Topics created from within a Group inherit the permissions set for that Group.

Creating the Group

  • From the Discussion home page, click on the Groups tab.
  • Click on the Create a Group button to the right of the Groups label.

  • Select Student Email under Add Students, and click Next.
  • In the Add your Students window, enter “” under Add Emails and optionally set a Guest password, and continue with the Next button.
  • The next window will give you the option to Duplicate your Topics by choosing from existing topics in the drop-down menu. Choose either Duplicate Topics or Skip for now.
  • Finally, you will be presented with the option to Share the Group or copy the Group link and then Go to Group.

You may now proceed to create Topics for your Group. For further information on Flipgrid, see the following knowledge base articles:
