Yellowdig: Share and Discuss


Yellowdig is an online pinboard used for sharing and discussing content. If your course is using Yellowdig, you can access your board by going to Canvas and selecting Yellowdig in the left-side navigation. Join the discussion by adding your own pins, commenting on other people's pins, and voting on comments and pins.

Troubleshooting:  if you see the Yellowdig homepage instead of your course's Yellowdig board when you click the Yellowdig tab in Canavs, you may need to enable 3rd-party cookies in your browser. http://help.yellowdig.com/hc/en-us/articles/208400478-When-I-click-on-Yellowdig-in-my-LMS-I-only-see-the-Yellowdig-homepage

  • On the Yellowdig board, in the points module, you will see the message, "Grading not configured. Fix this". Click "fix this" to connect to Canvas.
