A Promising Use Case of Vialogue
From the conference and my previous experiences on taking online courses, I came up with an idea about a promising use case of Vialogue. The video+dialogue feature makes Vialogue a perfect platform for online education.
The traditional online course system do not have good support for interaction among instructor and students. It is hard for instructors to mention content in the lecture, or for students to ask questions related to a specific topic. With Vialogues, discussions can be associated exactly to a time point in the video. All the above problems are solved. Besides discussion, the instructor can mark key points of his/her lecture. In this way, Vialogues is also really helpful.
I think we can start from Teachers College and Columbia University by recommending to instructors to start using our system for online courses. In the process, their feedback can help us better improve the system and also make the system more famous. After that, we can recommend Vialogues to more online course systems. It is really promising.
