LMS Integration: Multiple Boards per Course

We recognize that some professors would like to create a Yellowdig board for each week within their course. This would mean that 1 course could have as many as 10 to 15 Yellowdig boards. 

The Yellowdig team is currently working on implementing this customized option by identifying each board within 1 course by the Resource Link ID rather than the Context ID, which is always used in standard LTI integrations to identify a particular course.

In a standard integration, Yellowdig captures the Context ID from the LTI integration and creates a board according to this ID. The Context ID characterizes the particular course within the LMS. However, this means that only 1 board can be created per course. 

In order to create multiple Yellowdig boards within 1 course, Yellowdig can no longer use the Context ID but must capture the Resource Link ID instead.

This would mean that courses with multiple Yellowdig boards will be configured differently than courses with one Yellowdig board. 

For professors who wish to customize their course with multiple Yellowdig boards:

(1) Contact the Yellowdig team with your request (support@yellowdig.com)

(2) The Yellowdig team will get back to you with a contact from our tech team to help you with this integration.

(3) Configure your LMS with multiple boards and check gradebook integration.

(4) You are all set for the semester! Start pinning.
