Summer 2017 - Pilot Information

The Office of e-Learning is launching a 2017 SUMMER PILOT of the social learning platform called YellowDig.  Check out their website at

On the Yellowdig platform, which is accessed within Blackboard with no need to open anything new, faculty create a 'wall or board' online that course content can be 'pinned' to and allows for instructor and student interaction with the content. It promotes student engagement in courses and can be graded right in Blackboard.   It is being used by more than 65,000 around the country at more than 35 schools, including Arizona State, UC-Irvine, and Harvard. 

If you are interested in participating in the pilot as an instructor, please contact for more information.
