When using Yellowdig, individual universities, institutions, and businesses are contained within networks. Networks are private. Any content that is generated within an organization's network is unique to that network and is safely contained.
The content of Pins and Comments are controlled by the person who posted them with the exception of links to external content. For example, if a user posts a Youtube link on Yellowdig, we only maintain a link to the Youtube video on the platform without storing the video. Users have the right to delete or edit their posts at any time. Further, board owners and administrators have the right to edit or delete any posts on boards they own.
Public & Private Boards
Within each organization's private network both Public and Private boards can be created and there are ways that organization members can browse the available boards.
Public Boards: Public boards are open to all users within the network (i.e., at your organization or university). Though their functions can vary widely, some organizations use them to do things like post school-wide announcements and events.
Private Boards: Private boards allow board owners to restrict access to users. To join a private board, a learner must be part of a class within an LMS, or the board owner needs to send an invite or grant permission. Private boards can be hidden so that only those who have been invited can them. To enable this feature hiding feature, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Board owners can change a board from Public to Private and vice versa at any time.
Users can belong to more than one network within Yellowdig and can easily switch between networks. When hovering over the network that a user is currently signed into, all other networks will be displayed and can be clicked on to access (as illustrated below).
