SYLLABUS CONTENT (SAMPLE ONLY, COPY AT YOUR DISCRETION)
We will be using the Flipd app (website) in class to measure engagement and attendance. Flipd helps you stay focused and on-task, measures attendance, and allows you to participate in pop quizzes. Flipd is also a useful study tool outside of class, giving you access to content for managing stress, productivity, and wellbeing.
[optional, example only] Flipd will be worth [XX] points toward your [participation grade] in class. You’re responsible for using the Flipd app in every class to earn these points. While you’re “Flipd Off”, you can still receive an emergency phone call or text (which I would expect you to take in the hall outside the classroom anyway). Flipd sends me a full summary of your participation every class, so if you’ve had Flipd on the whole class I will give you the credit.
