LMS Display Options

Upon installing Yellowdig, it’s possible to customize how it is that Yellowdig is seen and accessed within your organization’s LMS including location of Yellowdig link as well as visibility dependent on LMS user role.



Student Created Boards With Automated Owner Transfer

Yellowdig may be configured to allow for students to create and launch Yellowdig boards from the LMS. When enabled, this feature allows students to initialize discussions without needing to wait for instructor involvement.

Instructors may claim ownership of such boards after the discussion has started.



Customizing Color-Scheme

Yellowdig may be configured to display custom colors from your organization. This includes a high-contrast option for accessibility requirements.



Template Boards / Starter Content

You may supply Yellowdig with customized initial content which can be copied into subsequent boards as conversation starters or orientation materials.

Automated Attendance Data Tracking

Some of our customers use the Yellowdig Public API to track student attendance. Additionally, our team can configure attendance scripting to send automated attendance reports to your organization on a regular basis.
