What is Yellowdig?
Yellowdig is an online learning platform that leverages an understanding of human behavior and gameful technology to build healthy online-learning communities. Yellowdig is primarily used in curricular settings, but also works great to build co-curricular, faculty or other specialized communities.
Form Real Community
Yellowdig builds learning communities by incentivizing students to:
Listen to each other's insights
Interact with genuine conversations
and Share their knowledge with their peers
We use five principles of Community Pedagogy to guide our work. The first principle, "keep what works in the classroom", is described in this video. The rest of the principles are available within our Instructor Certification Course, or by speaking with a Yellowdig team member.
Yellowdig is digital platform with a modern social media interface that easily integrates with any LMS or can be used as a stand-alone web app.
Yellowdig is FERPA compliant.
Yellowdig can be used for any course delivery modality:
Modality uncertain / changing within a term
Community Health Dashboard
Easily track vital components of your community and compare to all of Yellowdig:
Sharing Score: how well students are synthesizing information
Listening Score: how much students are consuming content
Interacting Score: how connected your community is
The Network Graph Visualization & Table shows how connected your community members are. Instructors can view community interaction at both a high level and at an individual member level.
You can do things like:
See which members are connected
Identify community leaders that many people interact with
Identify at risk members that are not connecting with others and may need help
