Set up the Schoology integration: Admins

Flip and Schoology have collaborated to connect their platforms and make it easier for educators to share Flip with their students.


This integration helps:

  • Connect Flip topics to Schoology assignments: All videos in those Flip topics will show up in Schoology assignments.
  • Students access Flip topics from their Schoology accounts: Students can find Flip videos directly in Schoology.

There are multiple ways to set up this integration. These steps show administrators how to integrate Flip to their Schoology courses and assignments:
