The main thrust of flipped learning is that the learner is given materials (online video, for example) to look at outside of the classroom so that those materials can then be discussed back in the classroom.

It has within its vaults every book published in the English language after 1911, and a lot of those published before that time.

Because I could see on thatquiz that students were doing their assignments and I loved seeing what was going well and needed re-teaching. Then it didn't work anymore. The test results were horrible.
