What Is It?

Yellowdig is a social pin-board for teams that lets you quickly share items of interest, assess student participation, and drive class discussions within your private community. Integrated into Blackboard Learn, Yellowdig helps to turn your course into a social learning community. Students have a familiar looking site similiar to other social networks with the ability to post and share content.  Faculty are capable of setting up a point system to rate the quality of content posted which in turn can be published back to the Blackboard gradebook and used as a participation score.
