Using Communities for a Deeper Learning Experience
Traditional discussion boards don't offer a holistic learning experience, instead, learners are simply all writing responses to a prompt for their instructor to read.
In fact, 94.5% of instructors feel a holistic learning experience in Yellowdig engages students more in course material compared to discussion boards.
Richer learner connections result in improved student success outcomes
The reality is students want to share their ideas and read other students' interpretations in order to learn, but they typically lack a platform in which they can easily make connections.
Improved Completion Rates
Creating a learning environment in which every student completes the course is near impossible, but instructors who employ Yellowdig move the needle by seeing an 11%-14% increase in completion rate.
Increased, Meaningful Engagement
For example, At the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, one professor saw a 190% participation rate in their community meaning the engagement was almost double to what was required in the class.
Better Connections, Better Grades
Across multiple partners, we have seen that active Yellowdig usage practically guarantees students don't fail.
