    How it works: Computer Admins create the functionality that allows users to use upgraded drawing feature and voice to create tutorials that demonstrates the solution to a given problem in real time. Why: Many online students never gain the experience of observing a problem related to a specific concept they are learning solved in real time. This is where classroom students have a huge advantage. Classroom students are able to observe their instructor solving a math problem in real time and afterwards, they can ask questions, collaborate with other students, and gain a meaningful understanding of that particular concept. This is where the limitations of virtual/online schools get exposed. However, by creating he ability to allow users to create their own video tutorials, this alone would greatly enhance OS in many ways. Online students will finally get a chance to see the problem being solved in real time and they'll be able to listen to the user explain the steps as well, which is critical because in many cases, listening and observing is necessary in order to gain the full understanding. There are many benefits to this and hopefully it happens one day.

    Recorded. I should have mentioned that before. It will be recorded so that other users and view afterwards. I'm not saying it can't be live though.

    I wonder, does Google have any kind of API for their Hangouts service? If so, that could be a really cool way of implementing this idea.

    I think this is a gr8 idea but why only admins. . . . We can also make videos for the students I think that the videos should be recorded and live both ... Like ... when the class has completed the recorded class shall be able to view after that.. their is just a similar view of that classs formats : http://wiziq.com

    @mathslover i think what hero meant is that computer admins create the function...not the tutorial

    Video Tutorials On Open Study is a good idea.

    I'm open to any suggestions that would make that happen. The only thing that I would not like is anyone who would create a long post explaining how they don't think it would be a good fit for OS.

    I think we should do something with attaching "khanacademy" videos.

    Khan academy videos are not favored by all students ... even i am not a gr8 fan of that videos ...it will be nice if the classes are given by experts live and then recorded instead of attaching some other teachers video

    That would be the best case scenario, but creating a "live" tutorial may not exactly be feasible. But at the very least, users could record in advance then post it for other users to observe.

    I will point out that the team has already said they're not focusing on the regular tutorial idea, because the goal of OS is more focused on live question-answer than it is on creating an archive of tutorials. They like tutorials, and would work more on implementing them if they had infinite amounts of time, but since time is limited they are currently on a back burner. I imagine that the same will apply to this idea, since it is just a modification of the general tutorial idea. Refer to AravindG's thread here: http://openstudy.com/updates/4ffdc138e4b09082c06f0d7b

    Why do I even make suggestions on OS? Someone always comes along and ruins the party.

    @Hero ; That will be cool, now i think i get it. What we do is, if there is a question we answer it with video - step by step or voice might be. Next that video tutorial is saved. Finally if someone else wants to find it's answer.. then they can find it. With this : Openstudy should add conference too! It's very important i think.

    Yup great one hero . But in past open study has faced loading problems , specially that irritating "aw snap". So if video/audio tutorials come into existence , then connectivity should be given the topmost priority.

    @Hero You're suggestion is to allow answerers to create a video response rather than a textual response? That would be cool to have the ability to make a 'tutorial' as well and quickly as one may create a text-based response. It seems though that to create such a video tutorial, one must use the same tools available (drawing, attach file, equations) to create that video - to fill it with content. I'd imagine then, that the video-ing of those actions actually adds a layer of inactivity perceived by the asker and a delay of the answer to the asker - while the teaching is now all compact in a video - and asynchronicity as the video is "produced", rather than in a fluid conversation. Am I misunderstanding? Or is this more related to a something that would be akin to a Skype with awesome plugins - like ability to write equations and view a shared whiteboard at the same time for all participants? Thinking of and discussing how to advance the level of interaction available on OpenStudy is crucial - especially as more users join with different responses to methods of conveying 'learning'

    I didn't mean that video responses would replace textual responses. That would be too dramatic of a change. I just meant that it could exist as an option or alternative. It's always good to have more than one approach. The video responses could prove to be more effective at demonstrating a concept. It could be implemented as part of a tutorial section where people simply create videos related to concepts in whatever subject, or it could be implemented as an option to textual responses. I just think it would be great if it was implemented in either capacity.

    Ah, OK. The idea of the tutorial section is, where I guess users can create videos on anything, like how to solve systems of linear equations - in general concept and with 1 or 2 examples, correct? This would a great complement, providing another tool for presenting information. If these videos can be rated, then we can eventually find the best way to present a concept, embed it in the discussion, and add much more content and even clarity. Yes, perhaps a first step is allowing video embedding to allow the addition of tutorials other people have made on other educational sites like Khan Academy or MIT OCW courses. Then as the effectiveness of the video embed too is determined, then the tutorial concept can be embraced and users can create the tutorials 'in house'. That would be interesting.

    Maybe a live video response will be better and others can join in to discuss the problem like "google hangouts"

    Hero, if you don't like actually having a discussion about an idea, please do feel free to stop posting them. Posting an idea and expecting nothing but support speaks to an unrealistic view of a discussion, an immeasurable amount of arrogance, AND it's a great way to guarantee that good ideas will never evolve into great ones. People supporting your idea with a "but" is one of the best indicators that they've thought through your idea and know and care about the community enough to come up with ways it could fail to work. This doesn't mean the idea is bad, it means it's worthy of discussion. Ideas aren't parties, they're suggestions to the community and to the OpenStudy team about something you think may improve the site. If you aren't prepared to defend your suggestion, suggesting it in a forum where it will actually be discussed is not a good plan. You have failed on the most fundamental level of discussion, which is to accept opposing viewpoints and attempt to refute them. Unlike math, there is no single right answer when it comes to communities or sites like this. Discussion, arguments, counterarguments, are the way that we reach a certain idea of what the consensus of the community is regarding any given idea. And even then, it isn't a guarantee that it'll be implemented. I really am sorry to rain on your parade by not being ubermensch with the ability to build everything the community asks for in a matter of days instead of years. But this is the real world, and we have to face real restrictions on our time. Just like you have to face criticism on your ideas, good or bad. Not showing a willingness to do so is a detriment to the OpenStudy community at large, and a bad example for less experienced users.
