YellowDig

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.

AirPennNet Updates to Impact Android Devices

Starting on Wednesday morning, May 20th at 7:00am, users of Android devices will need to update their wireless connection settings in order to access AirPennNet or Eduroam. This is because of a configuration change that ISC has to make to the authentication servers for AirPennNet. The devices that will be affected include things like Samsung Galaxy phones and tablets. Users of devices with other operating systems (ie Windows, Mac OSX, iOS, Linux) will not be affected. 

To update their wireless connection settings, Android users will need to connect to the AirPennNet Help network to update. Click here for information how to use AirPennNet Help.

If you are unsure whether your device will be affected, or if you need help updating your device, please contact your LSP
