eThink Education, a world-class eLearning solutions provider, has partnered with Yellowdig, a social learning SaaS platform, to enhance their eLearning offerings to their existing subset of Moodle™ and Totara clients.
Yellowdig, currently licensed by mainly higher education institutions, looks and feels like Facebook or LinkedIn, but is designed for use in online learning settings. Through this new partnership, eThink is able to provide their clients with the Yellowdig platform as an addition to their existing LMS feature suite. Yellowdig integrates directly with Moodle™ or Totara, providing a social networking experience to users, right inside the existing LMS.
Yellowdig features include:
- Learner profiles (profile photos, profile banner, learner background)
- Social feed: learners and instructors share content (external content or self-curated content) including videos, images, polls, code blocks, and LaTex
- Learner analytics and engagement data for instructors and organizations
- Conversations: 1-on-1 or multi-user private messaging
“eThink is excited to partner with Yellowdig to provide an innovative social engagement component to the learning experience,” said Brian Carlson, Co-Founder and CEO of eThink Education. “Yellowdig encourages collaboration and interaction within the classroom by providing a tool that is not only easy to use, but is familiar to the learner as it mimics the look and feel of popular social platforms.”
Yellowdig founder and CEO, Shaunak Roy, said: “We are incredibly excited about this new relationship with eThink. They are the experts in what we know to be an incredibly impactful implementation of Moodle™ and Totara to improve learning. We are grateful to the eThink team for this opportunity to be a part of their hard work in the space. We look forward to adding Yellowdig to their impressive stack of technological offerings.”
Yellowdig is a social learning platform driven by collaboration and data science. Yellowdig forms a social layer on top of existing enterprise learning systems used by universities and organizations to build engaging learning experiences. Currently in-use at private, public, in-person, online, and hybrid higher education institutions — Yellowdig connects learners, increases communication and engagement, and improves retention.
