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."

What makes the pet industry special is that the customer paying for the service, is typically not the one who receives the service (the pet does). A single customer might own several pets at the same time. The owner's family might also bring the pets in to the store to buy stuff or receive care. The multiple different relationships of a pet with its owner or several owners can become difficult to keep track of. Most standard CRM systems are unable to account for such all the different connections between pet and owner/owners. But VIdegree allows users to freely add new fields or columns to record the name of each pet. This feature can also be combined with the tagging feature to label the service needs and commonly purchased items of each pet a customer owns along with other information such as the breed of the dog and the customer's rating. Such features help easily organize the identity of the pet, the identity of the customer, and the service or goods required in relation to each other. This service improvement is only made possible by the fact that VIdegree allows for the addition of new fields and also its tagging feature.

Our dedicated, attentive, and immediate customer service has helped us win the trust of our customers. GSS's VIdegree has been the perfect tool in helping us achieve all of this." Mia further touches on, "Our memory is never as good as we think. It's quite possible to forget something you said or did just 3 or 5 days ago. That's why we need to make records! If you're able to remember everything without help, that means you don't have enough business. The more customers you have, the more you have to remember which makes taking records that much more important. So don't wait until later, but start making it a habit to take records now. Managing customer information is necessary for continued growth."
