Yellowdig Engage has a built-in point system to encourage interaction. This is not the same as grading.
We recommend a point allocation setup for 16 chronological weeks of the term (with wiggle room for about 12 weeks of active participation), and a target of 3-4 engagements per active week.
You can alter the settings, change point allocations and earning periods, add topics, and accolades. If you do make changes, keep in mind what level of engagement is good for you, for your class, and for your adult online learners.
Default initial post
Once you have created your board, a curated first post will automatically appear and be pinned to the top of your board. This post will contain help links for users.
You may edit or delete this first post, or add an additional post, introducing yourself to the class and setting the tone for the board.
