We are excited to announce that we are launching a new interactive discussion tool called Yellowdig. Yellowdig is a discussion platform that leverages social media-inspired design with a behavior incentivized points system, gamified badges, auto-nudging, multi-media sharing capabilities, detailed analytics, tagging, highlighting, searching/filtering, reactions, and auto-scoring for faster and easier grading.
FIU courses will be able to use Yellowdig free of charge during Summer 2021. If you would like to continue using Yellowdig in subsequent semesters, students will be charged $9.95 per course per semester.
To help you get familiar with this new feature, we will be hosting a recorded training on Zoom on Friday, April 2nd at 1 p.m. To participate in the Yellowdig training, please complete the Yellowdig Webinar Registration. For more information about Yellowdig, view the Yellowdig help article found on the canvas.fiu.edu website.
If you have any additional questions please contact the FIU Canvas Help team.
