2. How to create a class

Inside your registered Flipd account, select Classes and then Create a Class. It's important that you fill out your class information correctly, including the time of day and day(s) of the week that this class occurs. *Flipd will only track your class based on the information provided. 

Once you've successfully created a class, you'll receive a unique Class Code for that class. This code will be required in order for your students to join the class.

3. How to implement Flipd in your course

When you've registered, created a class, and received your new class codes, it's time for your students to join your classes. We recommend implementing Flipd information into your syllabus for easy referencing with some help from this resource here

4. Using the Flipd dashboard

Your classes and their unique Class Codes will always be available by logging into the web-dashboard and heading to view your Classes.

You can view each class one at a time and see specific student data and summary reports, or you can edit and make changes to the class under Settings. You can also view a full summary of your classes in the Overview.

You can use the information you see in the Overview or in each class to learn patterns and trends around engagement and participation throughout the semester. Are you wondering if one lecture had lower engagement than another, or perhaps students are more likely to "check out" in the last 15 minutes? These are the types of insights you can gather from data Flipd collects and displays on your dashboard.

5. Taking attendance

You can also take attendance easily and creatively with Flipd. This feature takes some flipped and blended learning strategies that help engage students as class begins. Learn more about Flipd Attendance in this article

6. Conduct a Flipd Poll for after-class polling

Use Flipd to poll your students after the lesson is over. This feature lets you add questions in real-time, ask students to perform activities after class, or pose more thought-provoking questions that require deeper exploration. Learn more about Flipd Poll here. 

7. Send messages and track views

Use Flipd Messages to send important messages to your class and keep track of how many students are reading them. You can use Flipd Messages to send short and long-form messages, including everything from brief announcements, to articles, resources, and a variety of different materials that can be easily consumed on your student's devices.

8. Export your data to award points

Many educators using Flipd track attendance and how much time their students spend Flipd Off throughout the semester in exchange for points. From the dashboard, you can select the Export button to export your data from a specific class to a CSV. This article details how other educators track points this successfully, as well as other key tips we recommend.
