Yellowdig: An Alternative Discussion Tool

Wednesday, August 25, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


Yellowdig is an alternative to Blackboard’s discussion board tool. In form and substance, it works much like social media platforms, supporting text and video posts as well as allowing participants to use likes or emojis to react to posts and comments. It provides flexible ways for the class community to interact.

In this session, you will learn about Yellowdig’s features and Blackboard integration (e.g., no additional logging in and participation data transfer to the Grade Center, if desired). Participants will leave the workshop able to decide whether Yellowdig or Blackboard best serves their course goals.

Facilitated by Susanmarie Harrington, Writing in the Disciplines, and Holly Buckland Parker, Center for Teaching and Learning
