User feedback for Vialogues

Share ideas, find help, and get in touch.

  1. comment thread

    Automatic updates of the comment thread would be useful, especially during live events such as the EdLab seminars. Currently, I have to continually refresh the page before I can see new comments.

  2. Login credentials

    It would be great if you could use your google credentials to create an account and login.
    Many schools have google domains and as such students already have account details that could be used easily.

  3. invite users with a PIN rather than email

    I am an educator and I see a lot of potential in this app. The teacher can create video tutorials and share them with students. However, many k-12 schools in the US do not provide emails for students. It would be much more convenient if the student could access the teacher's Vialogues with a PIN that the teacher shares with the students. Edmodo and Ask3 (from TechSmith) have adopted this approach and it is much more convenient for all involved.

    Thanks for your attention.

  4. Use standard meta tags to improve sharing on sites like Facebook

    When sharing a vialogue link on Facebook, no thumbnail or video meta data (title, duration, the fact that it is a video) appears. This is unfortunate because many people do not know that a vialogue link is a video and without the thumbnail, it is easy to overlook the post. I think this is a lost opportunity for those trying to share vialogues and for the platform as a whole. You can read about Facebook meta tags here:

    http://developers.facebook.com/docs/opengraphprotocol/

    There may be other meta tags for other sharing sites, but I am not familiar with them.

  5. Prezi and Jing Presentations?

    I use Jing sometimes to create short training videos, screen captures of some on screen activity as I make audio commentary. Snagit will be the tool used after the end of the year. Some of these videos are pushed up to Screencast.com. Maybe be able to pull from this site like YouTube?

    Not sure of all the technical issues of treating a Prezi presentation as a video, but if it would work, would be nice... may have timing issues since a Prezi can be paused or manually walked through instead of like a video.

  6. How about being able to create audio comments

    I like that it's easy to create a URL link without having to code. I wanted to add an audio comment, so I called my WordPress site and created an Audio Post. I then copied that URL and easily pasted it in the comment field in my Vialogue. Worked fine!

  8. Bookmarklets

    I would find a vialogue bookmarklet very handy as a way to make smoother workflow within the browser. I think the best bookmarklet I have seen is the one for Diigo.

  9. Perhaps we could have playlists?

    I would like to be able to create playlists. I could have different playlists for different classes. I could even have different playlists for different units in the class.

  10. Idea

    HI! This is my first time using vialogues and it seems quite useful. I would love it if there was a "like" or "agree" button under people's comments, so that you can show your support for other people's words and ideas without having to repeat what they say.

  11. Duplicating vialogues

    Would be handy for larger courses where typically group work prevails to be able to duplicate Vialogues, with each copy having a unique URL so groups can all do the same Vialogue but with smaller numbers making the interaction more manageable.

  12. Make Poll Results Viewable (To mods and/or participants)

    I just spent some time trying to find a way to view results to the poll I posted alongside my Vialogue. The results were buried under the manage screen, while I was expecting the poll results to be accessible somewhere near the poll itself. There should be a way to enable the moderator to view the results, and for the moderator to allow (or deny) the participants to view the results as well.

  13. How about including sound track format for dialogues as well?

    I was trying to upload a sound recording to start a dialogue. Then I realized that the format for uploading is limited to video.

  14. The iFrame for embedded vialogues looks odd

    Why is there so much white space at the bottom of an embedded vialogue? At the top there is hardly any, but at the bottom there is a lot.

  15. Change language of "This Vialogue has been closed from further discussion."

    i think this sentence is grammatically incorrect.

    Here is an alternative:

    Discussion has been disabled for this vialogue. Start a new one at vialogues.com

  16. 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"

  17. 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)

  18. 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?

  19. 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?

  20. 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!
