For faculty who like the idea of Discussion Boards in their Canvas sites, but want to boost student engagement with them, YellowDig may be the answer.
YellowDig is a Canvas plug-in that has variously been described as "a synthesis of Reddit and Instagram" and "discussion boards on steroids". It allows instructors and students to post articles and files, web links and audio/video media to a "feed" available to the class. Users can view the posts on laptops or smartphones, and can comment on the materials posted, building engagement and a sense of community.
