Fort Hays State University
Fort Hays State University participated in a pilot program where Yellowdig was used across four marketing courses. Three professors at the university studied the effectiveness of Yellowdig in increasing student engagement and improving student learning. Yellowdig was used for two purposes: (1) as a way to create a community inside and out of the classroom, and (2) as a means by which students could create and share course-relevant content throughout the semester. Their research was published in the Global Journal of Business Pedagogy.
The University of Akron
In February of 2018, Dr. Claudia J. Coleman presented to faculty on her use of Yellowdig in courses within the Department of Public Administration and Urban Studies. Dr. Coleman uses Yellowdig as a way to create "icebreakers" for learners in the beginning of a course. She also finds Yellowdig is a great way to segue from topic to topic throughout the semester.
