Flipped Classroom

Flipped learning delivers instruction through videos students watch at home, then uses valuable class time for in-class activities and one-on-one time with students. Its increasing popularity is prompting more classrooms to use it to boost learning, improve test scores, and increase accountability.

Flipping the Classroom with TechSmith Relay

TechSmith Relay is the best platform to flip learning at your school because it’s simple to use, it integrates with your current LMS, and uses your existing infrastructure, so teachers can start flipping with their existing laptops and mobile devices. By implementing the flipped learning approach, teachers are able to save time, build stronger relationships with students, and let students take control of their own learning.

 

Record your screen

With TechSmith Relay, you can easily record whatever is on your screen - presentations, lessons, diagrams, and more - as sharable video for flipped learning. Just push the big, red Record button, then press Stop when you're done. You can even include your webcam, to add a human element to e-learning.

View anywhere

Unlike other video platforms, TechSmith Relay lets you create your flipped lessons from anywhere - on campus, at home, or on the go. Record real-world teaching moments with your smartphone, iPad, and more. Then, use your recordings to teach hands-on skills, current events, and other engaging instruction.

Host your videos

TechSmith Relay gives you the perfect place to put your flipped recordings. Your videos are hosted on your school's own secure site, where students can access them anytime, on any device. Everything is stored safely in the cloud, so you can focus on flipped learning, while TechSmith Relay takes care of the tech side.

See who watched

See which students watched your flipped videos and how much they've viewed, with real-time analytics in TechSmith Relay. Add check-in points to your videos to make sure students grasp the lesson. Results go directly to your LMS gradebook, so you can adjust your in-class activities based on class understanding.

Integrate with your LMS

Since TechSmith Relay works with your LMS (Canvas, Schoology, Blackboard, and more), you can keep everything in one place. Integration with Azure Active Directory (AAD) means it's easy to manage access and permissions. You can even set up automatic notifications to alert students of new videos, so everyone stays in the loop.

Rewind and replay instruction

Not all students learn at the same pace. TechSmith Relay lets students rewind and replay lessons as much as they need, so struggling students have more time to master tough topics. They can pause, jump to a specific section of the video, or even replay it at a faster speed (up to 2x), for quick review.

TechSmith customers are flipping their classrooms

 

Stacey Roshan

Stacey Roshan found that the traditional classroom model wasn't cutting it for her AP students, so she flipped her math classroom. Now her students feel caught up and engaged with course concepts. Plus, they're less anxious about exams.

Crystal Kirch

Crystal Kirch started using videos as instructional tools in her class but soon realized the real value of flipping lectures was being able to spend more face-to-face time with students.
