For students & instructors:
Automatic grading system
Our patented points system rewards students as they interact, comment, and post. Students can always access their grade to see where they stand throughout the duration of the course, starting from day 1. Thanks to Yellowdig's integration with Learning Management Systems (LMSs), grades get passed back automatically, which saves instructors a ton of administrative work.

A limitless post editor
Our post editor allows students to edit code, write scientific formulas, attach media, draw, use polls, take pictures, link external sources, use in-platform hashtags, tag classmates, and much more.
Advanced participation tracking
Students can track their participation throughout the course using the real-time analytical tools found on the "my participation" page. The periodic pace chart (in addition to other tools available) allow students to track and plan their performance for each period.
