Flipping the classroom gives teachers like you the opportunity to introduce students to new concepts as their homework so you can focus on using class time to help them better understand what they've learned. Although there are several types of media out there that you can use to flip your classroom, video lessons can be the most effective. They entertain and engage students, and are a format that students are already used to accessing.
Here are our tips for how you can start using Study.com to flip your classroom:
1 - Find Videos that Correspond to What You're Teaching
We have thousands of video lessons and your membership gives you access to every single one of them. You can browse for lessons by looking up courses on our course index page, or can use our search bar in the upper, right-hand corner.
2 - Make a List of All the Courses You Plan on Using
We think it can be helpful to save a list of any courses you might be using and include an approximate date of when you want to assign them. This way, you have an easy reference of what you'll be using when.
3 - Make a List of All the Email Addresses of Your Students
To assign lessons to your students, you need to insert their email address, with each email address separated by a comma. Make assigning lessons easier by having a ready made list so that all you have to do is copy and paste each time you want to send a lesson to your students.
4 - Assign the Lessons to Your Students
Find schools that offer these popular programs

Use our assign lesson button to input your students' email addresses. You can even add a personal message if you'd like. Once you assign the lessons, your students will receive an email notification that will include a link to access the lesson. As long as they use the link in that email, they'll be able to access the video without creating an account. Links are good for 30 days.
5 - Post the Lesson in Your Learning Management System
If you have a learning management system, you can post a link in there for your students to access the lesson, instead of emailing the assignment to them. You'll just need to send an email to yourself using the assign lesson feature. Once you receive it, right click the link, select copy hyperlink and paste that link into your learning management system.
6 - Collect Lesson Scores
When you assign lessons, you can have your students take the quiz that accompanies each lesson. Their scores will then be emailed to you so you can verify they took it.
7 - Discuss the Topics in Class
Now that you've introduced the students to topics using Study.com video lessons, you can use your class time to talk more about the topics or to do related activities.
