Is it only for videos?
No sirree! Upload your video, audio, images, PDF, and Office documents. We’ll handle them all.
What can I do with it?
Put your teaching video and audio in the cloud so kids can access material 24/7 from wherever they want. Create a podcast of your flipped lectures so kids can download new episodes to their mobile devices as you make them available. Search for your content quickly and intuitively. Use Chapters to mark critical sections of videos so you can quickly play them during class without hunting around for the right spot.
Isn’t this just like that other video website?
Sort of, but not really. Youtube is only a video streaming website. Some teachers find it quite useful, others quickly discover its limitations and often find it blocked by their school firewalls. Flipasaurus was designed FOR educators BY educators. Its streamlined interface helps get the job done so you can get back to teaching.

How is it a “private library”?
With Flipasaurus, any media you add enters a private space that you completely control. You determine who can access your content and how. You can add others to your library so they can add content or just browse – you decide.
What kind of animal is a Flipasaur?
Flipasaurus is a large, sociable dinosaur in the family Tyrannosauridae. Although still extant (not extinct), Flipasaurus was discovered in 2006 in the foothills west of Colorado Springs, Colorado by science teachers Aaron Sams and Jonathan Bergmann. The species is still somewhat unknown, though its primary prey is believed to be long boring homework assignments. The Flipasaurus thrives in environments high in student engagement and rigor. Preliminary footprint analyses indicate a mastery gait capable of outpacing known upright bipedals of any era. When asked to characterize their discovery, both scientists declined stating, “there is no single way to describe a Flipasaurus”.
