Coming Soon to Yellowdig's Engage Platform
You suggested, and we listened! Our Dev team has been working hard to update the Yellowdig Engage platform with great new features to improve the platform for instructors and learners alike.
A new and improved post editor experience is coming soon that will allow you to do more when creating posts and comments and do so more easily. These updates will be made available in communities starting April 2022:
Now let's dive into more specific details about these updates, and how you can best utilize them.
Code Block Editor
Our code block editor will allow you to display code in more than 50 programming languages. You can utilize this feature-- especially in STEM classes-- to compare solutions to coding challenges, ask for help from peers about issues with your code, or display syntax in different languages.
Updated Emoji Picker
We've added more emoji accessibility to our platform. Add emojis to your posts to give it a pop, and now, you can select emoji skin tones!
More Image Support
We have updated our post editor to include a variety of ways to improve image support. Easily resize images or move images inline to your liking right from the post editor. Also, we now support animated GIFs in posts! Add GIFs as visual tools or just as fun additions.
Easier File Uploading
We are so excited to support Drag & Drop file uploading! Adding images and other external media has never been easier than with this feature. We also now support copy/paste more with image upload.
New Image Annotation Feature
Sometimes, the best way to show a point is to draw it out. Now, you can finally do that in Yellowdig! You can now annotate any images you upload to a post. Engineering students, other STEM students, art students, and any visual learners-- this one's for you!
New Tables Feature
Last but not least, add tables to your post to help demonstrate relationships, organize your thoughts, or for any purpose you see fit! With this new feature, you can create and edit tables on any post.
We Do It For You!
Here at Yellowdig, we truly value our clients' and users' opinions and thoughts. These updates have been inspired by you! We can't wait to see these great new features and updated tools in action.
