What was the Learning Conference?
“Education 3.0 is where institutions empower students by strategically thinking about the needs of the modern learner, the workforce they're entering, the ways to make learning more relevant to them, and how to meet their need to connect with their peers and resources in a modern way.” ~ Shaunak Roy, Yellowdig's Founder and CEO
The conference was held on August 2nd, virtually. At the start of the day, we explored Education 3.0 from a broad industry perspective with insights from leaders across higher education. Then, we shifted the conversation to dig into inspiring stories of instructors successfully utilizing Yellowdig and other techniques to bring elements of Education 3.0 into their classrooms.

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."
