Vialogues & Ednode presentations at TCETC 2011 Conference
I presented Vialogues this past weekend at TCETC (Teachers College Educational Technology Conference) 2011.
There was an overwhelming response to Vialogues. In general, people thought it would be very useful for their class and students. Someone thought this could be a direct competitor to YouTube (not that we are or will ever compete with YouTube). People tweeted about Vialogues
, and applauded twice - once after the presentation and once in the middle of Q&A. Someone signed up, and some said they will sign up. Someone wanted us to think about its' commercialization!
Ankit and I also presented Ednode
at TCETC. We received some great feedback on how we could more clearly distinguish Ednode from other similar tools such as LinkedIn and Facebook. In general, people liked the idea of Ednode allowing you to build connections specifically around communities (like the TC community), but also suggested to strike a balance between community presence along with a global presence so that it doesn't give the impression that you are not connected outside of your targeted community.
