Product Review of Vialogues
Vialogues provides a space for educators to upload their own videos or videos from other services such as Vimeo or YouTube and hold discussions, create surveys, and add multiple-choice questions. Through Vialogues, educators can turn the passive activity of watching a video into a dynamic, engaging classroom collaboration. Since educators can upload any video they desire, this website can be used across all ages and curriculums.
What Users Love About the App
“I posted a video and asked students to comment on three aspects of the video and to respond to each other’s posts. The students enjoyed being able to playback the video to track evidence. They also seemed to have commented on similar points of the video.”
“It’s important to discuss videos WHILE they’re playing. In addition to immediate recall of important ideas, it would give all students an instant (or delayed if watched later) dialog about important concepts.”
