Yellowdig Engage is a dynamic social learning tool that greatly improves on Canvas's built-in Discussion tool for student engagement and interaction. From Yellowdig's introductory resource:
Yellowdig is a discussion platform that connects learners and empowers educators. Yellowdig boards create a private network where learning communities can be established, allowing discussion and sharing to foster the relationships, skills, and knowledge that allow people to thrive ...Yellowdig provides an easy means for learners and other users to communicate and collaborate about class content and share a broad array of timely and relevant learning resources from the wider world (e.g., videos, news articles, blogs and more) ... With Yellowdig, learning is not limited to class time or face-to-face interactions and becomes a shared goal of the entire learning community (i.e., your classes, departments, etc.). Community members can learn from each other, anytime, anywhere, from any device.
Please note that during Fall 2020 this tool is only available for College of Entrepreneurship courses.
