Search and suggest ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. pre-load video

    Pre-load a video:

    It would be great to add a "watch later" or "pre-load" video option for teachers with unreliable internet connections in schools. I can't tell you how many times we've been asked to give a video file to somebody who wants to show a video in a class or conference space that have internet limitations.

          • 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!

            • hashtag landing page bug

              there are two kinds of landing pages when searching hashtags. example:
              https://vialogues.com/search/advanced/?tags=dflls&title=&participants=&description=&exclude=
              and
              https://vialogues.com/search/tags?query=dflls

              this should get cleaned up in the future!

                  • 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.

                    • 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.

                        • 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.

                          • I think we need to adopt ds106 Assignment Bank idea to give folks a "bank" of possible use cases for Vialogues.

                            The famous digital storytelling online, F2F, and MOOC ds106 has a very cool digital space called the Assignment Bank (http://assignments.ds106.us/). I think Vialogues would benefit by having a space where users could generate projects and uses for Vialogues. They could even take another page from ds106 and use its Daily Create as a template for promoting user content,workpaths, and processes.

                                      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.

                                      • Full screen comments.

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

                                          It would be nice to be able to see and post comments to vialogues while the vialogue is in full screen mode. I often like to view videos in full screen. When doing so, posting comments becomes a tedious process:
                                          1. Stop video
                                          2. Minimize video
                                          3. Post comment
                                          4. Maximize video
                                          5. Play video
