Microsoft last year acquired Flipgrid to bring the power of video-based social learning to everyone. Flipgrid is now being used by millions of students, educators, and families in over 180 countries. At Flipgrid LIVE yesterday, Microsoft announced several new Flipgrid tools to empower students. Flipgrid response videos are now automatically transcribed, so students can enjoy them through the new closed-captioning experience. New Shorts Camera feature allows students to rearrange unlimited video segments into one simple video. Find the list of new features below.
- Transcription and Closed Captioning: Every Flipgridresponse video is now transcribed by Microsoft Azure and delivered through closed-captioning. The updated Flipgrid video player uses Microsoft’s Immersive Reader to make full transcripts available in all response videos.
- The Shorts Camera: Students can now stitch together and rearrange unlimited segments into one video, pause and flip the camera, add live inking over videos, record and embed Shorts videos in Teams, OneNote, Wakeletand more.
- FlipgridAR: Teachers and students can now create and print new FlipgridARstickers for any response to place Flipgrid videos in augmented reality on everything, “stick” student voice everywhere with FlipgridAR stickers, and use existing Flipgrid QR codes in schools around the world as they now work automatically with FlipgridAR.
- Topics:Students can find launch-ready discussion prompts (“Topics”) inside Flipgrid Educator Admin in the “Disco Library,” search 1,000’s of educator-created Topics by audience, subject, and goal. They can also explore Topics from Code.org, Find Your Grind, and Wonderopolis.
