This poster is based on the practical experience of implementing flipped classroom tools in a University Foundation subject: Digital Literacies. The subject incorporates blended learning elements and flipped classroom tools.

The practice of flipped classroom in this subject has four stages: preparation work prior to classes; concept checking to confirm understanding of topics in classes; deepening knowledge with teacher-led exercises and using self-reflection to internalise knowledge; and making relations to the students’ future occupation.

In the preparation stage students are required to learn basic concepts prior to classes. The content is delivered using two online tools: nearpod ( and edpuzzle ( The nearpod web app is designed to deliver self-paced content that includes interactive exercises like multiple choice questions, short answer questions, fill-in-the-blank activities. The Edpuzzle web app is used to create video-centred lessons that students can watch and engage with via multiple choice questions and short answer questions that are inserted into the video.
