What is Yellowdig?
Learning communities that connect learners and empower educators. These communities allow conversations and content sharing to foster genuine relationships, build skills, and promote deeper learning, enabling students to thrive.
As information is increasingly digitized and widely available, reading textbooks and memorizing facts is no longer the primary way to drive learning. Collaborative interactions with professors and peers are an increasingly valuable part of the learning experience. 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, creating a connected learning experience.
