Flip for Students

» Visit this page for an overview of using Flip.

Browser Compatibility

Do not use Flip with the Safari internet browser.

Use your NetID not a first.last email alias. Med students should use their @uvm.edu domain email addresses to log in to Flip.

Recording and Responding to Videos

Allowing Browser Access to Your Device

You may need to allow Flip to access your camera and microphone within your browser.

Using Alternate Devices

You can also record a video on your computer, phone, or tablet and upload it to Flip.

  1. Record a new video by clicking the red recording circle.
  2. If your instructor wants you to record your screen (such as to record a presentation and talk about a slidedeck), be sure to use a laptop or desktop with the Chrome or Edge browser, as indicated in the linked article.
  3. Respond to a classmate by watching their video and clicking the add a comment button. Depending on the settings your instructor has chosen, you may have the option to Comment via video, written text, or either.
  4. After recording your video (and before it posts), you’ll be prompted to choose a cover image (a screenshot from the video, a selfie, an uploaded image, or your name). And you will be asked to edit your display name (which defaults to first name + last initial), an optional link to accompany your video, and an optional title. Once these steps are complete, you can officially “Submit Video.”

Captions & Immersive Reader


Captions will be auto-generated, although it may take a few hours for them to show up. Flip’s autocaptions are not 100% accurate. The quality of the captions will be influenced by several factors. Try to record your video in a small space with limited background noise. Speak clearly. And notify your instructor if your captions are erroneous; instructors can edit the captions for videos (students cannot). These corrections are important to provide access for people who rely on captions to understand the content of videos.

Immersive Reader

Flip includes Immersive Reader, an accessibility tool that allows you to listen to the transcript of a video, read it line-by-line, change the font size, or adjust spacing between words.
