How to Embed Flipgrid Videos Into Your Blog

On Sunday I featured Flipgrid in my tip of the week. My video tutorial on getting started with Flipgrid included how to share your video prompts with students and how they can reply to your prompts. One method of sharing that I didn't include in Sunday's video was embedding Flipgrid videos into blog posts.

You can embed Flipgrid videos into blog posts in two ways. You can embed a "fully functional topic" into your blog or you can embed just a "topic card." Embedding a "fully functional topic" requires that your blog has an SSL certificate which most classroom blogs don't have. Embedding a "topic card" can be done on any blog that allows you to include third-party embed codes. Once you've embedded a topic card, your students can watch all of the videos that are connected to the same prompt that you posted. Watch my following video to learn how to embed Flipgrid videos into your blog.


It's important to note that you will have to make the videos public in order for them to be viewable when embedded as part of a topic card.
