The Shorts integration in Wakelet is for educators only.
Currently, the Flipgrid Shorts integration is for educator use only. In the meantime however, any Flipgrid video can be embedded into a Wakelet collection right now! Just copy/paste the share link from your Flipgrid educator account into any Wakelet collection. This way you can easily add student videos.
What does the integration let me do?
The Wakelet + Flipgrid integration allows you to record videos directly into a Wakelet collection using the new Flipgrid Shorts Camera.
What is Flipgrid?
Flipgrid is Microsoft’s video discussion platform for engaging every learner in your community. At the core of Flipgrid is a powerful, simple, and fun camera. Wakelet and Flipgrid have joined forces to add this revolutionary recording tool - the “Shorts Camera” - to the Wakelet experience: just as you can add a link, text, image, PDF, social media post and more, you can now add a Flipgrid Shorts video right inside a collection.
Where can I use the new Flipgrid Shorts Camera on Wakelet?
Shorts currently works with Chrome and Firefox! You can launch the Flipgrid Shorts Camera in your Wakelet collection on any computer with a webcam!
Why is it asking me to sign up for Flipgrid when I want to add a video?
You will initially need to sign up or log in to Flipgrid to link your Wakelet account. Once linked, Flipgrid videos recorded in Wakelet will be stored in Flipgrid. You can access and delete your videos from the Flipgrid Educator Dashboard via the “Shorts” tab.
I’m having difficulties logging in to use Flipgrid Video on Wakelet - what shall I do?
Try logging out of Wakelet and then logging in again. This usually helps! If you continue to have issues you may have to clear your cookies on shorts.flipgrid.com - email firstname.lastname@example.org if you need any assistance with this or that still doesn’t work.
If I delete a video on Wakelet will it delete on Flipgrid?
No. You will need to go to your Flipgrid Shorts account to delete the videos. Once they are deleted they will no longer show on Wakelet, however you will still want to delete the empty video item in your Wakelet collection.
I’ve logged in to my Flipgrid account but don’t see my videos. Where are they?
Make sure you’ve signed in to Flipgrid with the same email address associated with your Wakelet account. Your videos will appear under the “Shorts” tab of the Educator Admin. If you do not see them there, send the Flipgrid team an email at email@example.com
How long can a Shorts video be?
You can create a 3 minute long video using the Flipgrid Shorts camera on Wakelet.
Can my students use the integration?
No. This integration is just for you, the educator! If you want your students to record videos from Wakelet, simply set up a Flipgrid Topic and paste the link in your collection!
Is the integration available on Collaboration in Wakelet?
Not yet. We do not offer the Flipgrid Shorts integration for anonymous users who are using the collaboration feature without signing up to Wakelet.
