  1. Change language for "Close Vialogue"

    Close Vialogue makes me think i am leaving the page. If you are closing the vialogue to additional comments, why not "Disable Comments" or "Turn off Comments"

  2. Videos under processing should not show up in Recent Vialogues

    On the logged in homepage, videos which are being processed should probably not show up in Recent Vialogues until they are available for view. If theres a reason behind why you are currently showing them, then probably giving a little more information to the user might help ; For e.g. This video is currently being processed but would be available to view under 5 minutes. (And then the page should refresh using ajax) to show that the new vialogue is ready)

  3. Change the email notification system

    When different people comment on a vialogue you've created/managed (i'm not sure which), you receive a separate email notification for each person who comments. Is there any way to combine all those email notifications into one "conversation," so that your box isn't filled by a lot of notifications for the same vialogue?

  4. make the video available for others later

    I uploaded videos but unchecked "Let others create Vialogues for this video" while I was uploading, thinking this would keep the video private from being searched. But now that I would like to open up the video. How do I do that?

  5. 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!

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

  7. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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!

  12. 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?

  15. 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.

  16. 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!

  17. 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.

  18. Voice to text enabled?

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

  19. Full screen comments.

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

  20. 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?
