Flinga supports collaborative knowledge construction

With the Flinga platform, you can easily encourage active participation during meetings and classes. As Flinga is an online tool, you do not have to download any apps or software and you can use Flinga outside of campus. Flinga is a service where you create a whiteboard for collaborative working. All users who know the URL are able to edit the content and provide input.

The Flinga main page will open, and you can choose between two options:

  • Flinga Whiteboard is a platform for collaborative knowledge construction. The whiteboard can be based on a picture, image, questions or categories. The participants will select the shape of their figure, type the text and attach it to Flinga.

  • Flinga Wall enables you to collect comments, questions and responses from participants so that everyone can see them.

Enter a name for your session and click Create. You are ready to go!
