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 to flip your classroom:

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 create a classroom and add students to your classroom by entering their email or by sending the students a classroom link or classroom code. This will allow students to set up their free student account. Once your classroom is created and set up, you will be able to assign lessons and comprehensive assessments to your class.

Students can access this material by logging into their free students account as well.

Now that you've introduced the students to topics using video lessons, you can use your class time to talk more about the topics or to do related activities.
