What Yellowdig Conference Attendees Say...
"I was inspired by the way professors and instructional designers told their success stories. They are creatively using Yellowdig to improve engagement and learning outcomes not only in the context of a discussion board, but also as a means of driving engagement and mastery of their course content. I am truly excited by these results and will continue to encourage others to try this platform."
