Founded in 2015, Yellowdig has worked with more than 100 leading institutions globally. Yellowdig aims to transform education through organic, student-centered learning communities. Yellowdig offers learner communities from acceptance to your institution to beyond graduation. Yellowdig’s product offering for courses is Yellowdig Engage, which is not a bolt-on or a tool, but a learning platform that powers deeper learning and high-impact instruction by combining the power of gameful learning with a social media interface. Engage supports active learning and student agency, and increases participation, engagement, and retention. Engage is used by instructors across a diverse set of degree levels, study areas as well as in face-to-face, online, and hybrid course modalities.
The platform allows students to make posts, comment on each other's posts, share articles, write code and equations, and more, while awarding points and seamlessly passing grades to the institution's existing Learning Management System ("LMS"). There are also ample analytics tools within the platform for instructors to leverage to inform teaching.
