Exploring Yellowdig

I’m tuning in to things that are at the intersection of interest areas, and Yellowdig.com: yes. Rocket syellowdigcience moment: the basic idea is that students learn socially whether they are in or outside of classrooms. But the best ideas are the ones that take what we know and move us to where we might want to go. Seems like Yellowdig does that, at least looking at it. What is Yellowdig? It’s a social learning tool that uses the way students interact with each other (via social media) and makes this compatible with existing learning management systems (blackboard, moodle, canvas, etc.) AND allows an instructor to collect real-time data on student engagement with course content. Has anyone out there used it in their courses? Please do let me know. I’m considering integrating it into a Race, Place and Civic Media course I’ll be teaching in the spring semester.
