Instructor Orientation Guide

Yellowdig wants to make your orientation to our platform as pleasant and as efficient as possible.  There is a link below to a pdf that will help you get to know some fundamental functions such as creating a Pin, adding a Poll, or updating your User Profile. Please also take a look at our Instructors & Professors section of the Knowledge Base.  Between these resources you will find a helpful guide to best practices, some different use cases to consider for your own classes, a timeline for your semester, some templates for communicating about Yellowdig in emails or syllabi, and other pieces of useful information. 

To comply with the General Data Protection Regulations, all notifications for Yellowdig had to be set by default to being turned off.  This means, for example, that if someone mentions you in a post you will not be notified unless you enable that setting.

Users should note that there may be some deviations from the things you see in our documents and Knowledge Base due to universal options set by your organization or because of code customizations we did for your organization.  These settings are typically decided and set by an organizational administrator for the entire organization.
