Building Asynchronous Online Communities to Support Your Students

Posted Apr 09, 2020

Friends and Colleagues,

I hope you are well. Our thoughts go out to you as you deal with the spread of COVID-19.

After further surveying the current landscape, it is clear that in crisis-mode, many are turning to synchronous video tools such as Zoom to try to replicate the in-person class environment. We’ve all experienced what it’s like to be in a Zoom meeting with 10+ people...There’s hardly a chance for each person to contribute, and it’s challenging to have an engaging remote conversation with that many people. So how are you ensuring that your students feel engaged and supported during this time? Our CEO wrote this blog post on how Yellowdig can help build your online community to support your students outside of Zoom. We are also here to help at no cost during this trying time- please see this announcement from our CEO. 

If you are interested in learning how our platform can help build your online community, please reach out to us at [email protected]. A member of our team will be in touch soon with appropriate next steps. 

Be well,

The Yellowdig Team
