An Engagement Crisis in Higher Education
Synchronous sessions are limited to the few hours each week that learners are brought together, where often times instructors are struggling to gain the attention of their students. Much of a students’ real learning occurs in the time spent outside of class.
A need for deeper learning, student success
Persistence and drop-out rates
Yellowdig Engage offers a paradigm shift that drives students to interact with their peers and instructors in organic and meaningful ways.
Continue Conversations After Class
Students can pull examples from current events and their lives that connect to the class’s content, making the material more relevant to them.
Form a Supportive Community
Students often go beyond simple Q&A and will encourage each other through hard times, share study advice, and teach each other new things that they are experts in.
The conversation doesn’t have to stop when the class moves on from a topic either, students can draw connections from week 6’s topic all the way back to the topic that was covered in week 2, ultimately synthesizing better learning.
Drive Organic Conversations
Yellowdig's patented gameful learning point system motivates students to start conversations early and create content their peers will want to interact with.
Timely Peer Support
Students no longer rely on sending panicked emails to their instructor or just the few classmates that live in the same dorm, but instead they can tap into their network from the class in Yellowdig to ask and answer questions any time they need it.
Inform Your Teaching with Data
Yellowdig provides robust analytics of communities to help spot at risk student and topics the class needs more time on. Also, glean topics for class from posts.
Yellowdig allowed me to interact with my peers virtually to have a sense of community where it wouldn't have been otherwise. It also allowed us to communicate about related, but not required, topics.
Yellowdig Engage communities boost organic student engagement and drive meaningful results for our client partners.
