For our discussions in the OMSW course, we will be using a tool called Yellowdig. This page is designed to help you get the most out of Yellowdig, a powerful collaboration and engagement platform designed to enhance your learning experience. Whether you're a student, educator, or administrator, this help page will guide you through the various features and functionalities of Yellowdig, ensuring you have a smooth and productive experience.

Getting Started with Yellowdig

Note: Yellowdig access should ONLY occur through specific links INSIDE Blackboard. Do not attempt to access a Yellowdig community outside of a Blackboard link. You will NOT need to create a Yellowdig account. Instead, by clicking the link INSIDE of Blackboard, you will pass through to Yellowdig seamlessly.

2. A side panel will appear. Click Launch to join the Yellowdig Community.

2. The Yellowdig application will launch in a new window. If this is your first time launching Yellowdig, you will be provided with an Overview video (<2 mins). We strongly suggest watching the video to truly appreciate what Yellowdig is and how it will work for you as a student in this course.
