  1. Video stills

    https://vialogues.com/vialogues/play/2806

    Pranav asked that I submit an example of how the aspect ratio for a video that we upload is squished when a still is made.

    For youtube videos, there are no constrained proportions but for our videos, which are shot and edited in 16:9, they are squashed when converted to a 4:3 still. So, essentially every video that we upload is represented by the wrong aspect ratio in the still.

    Thanks!

  2. Pushing the Help button on the Create New Vialogues page doesn't do anything.

  3. We could make "Go to Vialogue" a bit more prominent

    This is currently listed in a small font size in blue towards the bottom of the page once you have created a vialogue.

  5. Username is uninformative & unprofessional in a discussion

    Currently, we are using usernames for identifying people in a discussion. These usernames are uninformative since people create usernames out of old school messenger ids. It also makes the discussion look unprofessional. I think that we should use Full Name (First Name, Last Name) to be displayed in the discussion, instead of the username.

  6. A reminder should pop up, asking to save changes

    The save button is quite small for saving changes to the participants and/or moderators. A reminder should pop up, asking "Would you like to save changes to the Vialogue?" when navigating away from the page.

  7. Closed captioning & exporting transcript data from the comment feed

    Re: Twitter feedback
    @dwicksspu David Wicks

    @Vialogues Great tool. Suggestions - Make it clear that YouTube is CC solution for now. Allow us to export transcript and question data :)

    It would be great for instructors to be able to download transcripts of vialogue discussions!

  8. Can we hyperlink the video titles?

    In the right-hand column of videos there is an option to click on the vialogues and the "create new" but not the video title? This is a bit confusing? Perhaps make all three clickable?

  9. expand all button for comments

    there should be an expand all button to show all the replies to all the comments so that one doesn't need to click more>> for each comment. example - https://vialogues.com/vialogues/play/615

  11. Create user channels

    Lets create user "channels" that people can either follow or view. This will allow people to gain a "following" and become "experts" on the site.

  12. Home page press/users

    Can we add PBS press etc. (once it is final to the main page?) or "these users (show avatars) are Vialoguing" somewhere on the main page? This could generate excitement & energy!

  13. Invite friends of users signing up

    Users who sign up using facebook or gmail or twitter are allowed to invite their friends to also sign up using the tool. That way it might be easy for getting more outreach done.

  14. Voice to text enabled?

    It would be amazing if special needs users could opt for voice to text commentary!

  15. Full screen comments.

    I wish you could make the vid viewer full screen and still comment in a floating text area.

  16. z-axis for vialogues

    I like layering the comments over the video, with half the text pushing into the video space. It works nicely most of the time but ocassionally (at least on Chrome), this breaks and the comments are behind the video and so no legible.

    Working: http://dev-critter.tc.columbia.edu/vialogues/overlapped_working.png

    Broken: http://dev-critter.tc.columbia.edu/vialogues/overlapped_broken.png

    Can we make this more consistent?

    We should have the option to pause the video while typing.

  18. More descriptive analytics for poll results

    Right now the only results shown for poll questions are in percentages. In future releases, it might be worth it to consider adding even more descriptives, such as how many people (and even who) answered the question. Also, the poll result image should expand based on the content inside. For example, sometimes when the answers are long, they get all smushed together and it's impossible to read.

  19. "Like" a comment

    I'd like to "like" a comment... but I don't think we should be able to dislike a comment.

  20. Show more comments

    It looks like Vialogues only shows 3 comments per thread at a time. So if there were 5 comments made to someone's post, I have to click "more" to see the rest of the comments. I think this button (the "more" button) is easily overlooked, especially when it's placed under a comment that needs to be expanded. Why not just show all of the comments in a thread? Or, at least make the expand/contrast functionality more apparent.
