Learners can create boards if their organization allows it. It should be noted that a lot of organizations, by default, do not allow their learners/students to create boards. If that is the case this option would not appear in the Network dropdown as indicated in Step 1 below. Even in organizations that do allow learner-created boards, they require approval from the organization administrator.
For a student to create a board they will:
1. Click on Network at the top of the Yellowdig window and select "Add a Board." That will result in the following "Create a Board" dialogue box.
2. Enter a name for the new board, select a category, and choose whether the board is to be closed or open. Once the administrator approves the board, it will be created. Organizational administrators can find out how to approve boards here.
3. Once created the student board owner can administer and use the board as set and limited by the organizational administrator.
