Yellowdig is a digital solution that impacts the entire student lifecycle and enables rich community experiences for all students. Yellowdig isn’t just a message board, it is an extension of the classroom. Yellowdig sparks meaningful conversations while tracking progress, freeing up faculty from grading. This assistance allows them to spend their time being a helpful “guide on the side” and interacting with students. Ultimately, students learn more and both students and instructors enjoy taking part.

Below is a list of resources about Yellowdig's efficacy:
