Teaching college courses should not be the same as junior and senior high school where standardized textbooks, tests, and answers are used. Especially in regards to art, there should be an even greater emphasis on stimulating creativity and creative thinking. I want my students to surpass me, I want to teach them to catch fish, not sit there and memorize their textbooks," said Professor Lin excitedly. Separating from traditional teaching methods, he has innovatively begun to use VIdegree's cloud based CRM to interact with students, manage courses, and keep records of students' learning process. In the process Professor Lin has seen previously unimaginable results, and the process itself has been the best example of creativity.

Moving the classroom onto the cloud

Leaving footprints of the earning process. Increasing teacher-student interaction through social media platform. Managing and grouping of courses made easy.

 The setting is the first day of class at the National Taiwan Normal University in Design Theory. The professor uses an Ipad to project material onto a screen ahead. Students provide responses, interact, look for information , all directly on the cloud. A new innovative way of teaching which combines technology and learning is in the process of making waves. 

 

"Taiwanese students are too used to being spoon-fed information, but art is alive, it exists in each our lives. If the curriculum is too rigid, the teaching is uninspiring, and it distresses me," expressed National Taiwan Normal University Professor Lin Da-Long. The fact that Taiwan lacks innovative talent like Steve Jobs, has given Professor Lin a greater conviction to teach his students using logical, cumulative, convenient and interactive teaching methods in the hopes of nurturing a next generation of students with greater cultural and creative talent.

 "Coming into contact with GSS's VIdegree cloud service, has made possible this incredible journey!" expressed Professor Lin. For several years, he has contemplated on how to come up with a better way of teaching.

 In VIdegree, the professor is the administrator. Students can then just register and start using the platform. Professor Lin uses tagging to group students by project they are responsible for, explaining that, "For a professor, being able to very clearly manage and organize students by project allows students to also engage each other through the platform." Students can freely upload information they've gathered, work pieces, and engage in discussion through comments. The teacher can also view comments and responses to provide guidance. All you have to do is select a tag, and the information you want to find appears." it's "Really Awesome!" expressed Professor Lin.

 In addition, students can view lecture contents by week or subject. They can even upload supplementary information onto the cloud and engage in interaction with the teacher. Students have also been very active in engaging in online discussion, "Which is a direct contrast with traditional teaching methods where when the professor asks if anyone has a question, they are always met with silence," stated Professor Lin.

This system has been an even greater blessing for our graduate students, "Both graduate students and professors are extremely busy. Either the professor can't find the student, or the student can't find the professor." Professor Lin further emphasizes that, "The teaching process is very important, through VIdegree can provide guidance at any time. Students can think of something in the middle of the night and leave a comment, and I will still receive it. I can then respond which leaves footprints of the student's learning process. In comparison to email, it always becomes impossible to know which version is the most recent. Under the continuous and cumulative guidance of the professor, students are able to have a research direction in mind by the early stages of their graduate career. A lot of time is spent on back and forth discussion. Trying out this new method of teaching has given us an entirely new experience and we have all gained something from it."

All of his customers' needs or requirements are recorded using VIdegree as pending/to do tasks as reminders to himself. Just because a customer has viewed an estate, doesn't mean his job is done. Clients are often not satisfied, or still have additional needs. If only paper records are made, it is very easy to forget certain important details resulting in missed sales opportunities. "VIdegree's "pending tasks" notifies and reminds me of tasks on the services main page, by email, and mobile push notifications. These reminders help me keep customer wishes on my mind at all times, until I find exactly what they need. And that is how I like to close all my cases."

According to Dr. Lin, "Life8 was established in 2012, and has already accumulated a large number of members. Member demographics are quite diverse, we have put serious effort into maintaining and promoting interaction between members, hoping to provide members with a quality consumer experience. But as membership grew, the amount of moderator duties and workload also increased alongside the numbers. The question of how to effectively and accurately moderate and manage customer relations became a major issue we had to overcome. Luckily, soon after, we found the Vldegree Customer Management Service. Using Vldegree, we were able to organize our customers into different categories, enabling us to more accurately analyze customer RFM. Only through such a process were we able to better understand customer needs and then provide them with the service they deserve!"

Manager Lin states, "In the past, we never used any sort of customer relationship management tool, customer data was simply saved using Excel, but Excel has no management features such as work reporting or instant searching. Later, we tried some other systems, but their functions were much too complex to use, it was hard to come up with practical uses for most of these complex functions. In the end, we decided to use VIdegree, not only was it the most convenient to use, it also best meets the needs of our company!"
