How many times have we all sat through a presentation when it should just have been a conversation? Most interactions and meetings are conversations, yet time and time again linear presentation tools are used for discussions. At Vimodi, we are developing technology that helps users have a more engaging, responsive and effective visual discussions. A true dialog is made of sharing and discussing ideas flexibly - without a predetermined path. We believe that discussion improves with greater interaction and richer content. Technology has revolutionized the way we distribute and present content, but existing tools do not provide the interactive format needed for effective discussions and dialog. The idea for Vimodi was born in the classroom. As a business school professor, Michelle regularly taught using case discussions. Existing presentation tools like PowerPoint forced discussions into linear paths, which limited the opportunities for students to develop their own insights and ideas. Instead, Michelle often reverted to the chalkboard, leaving a lot of unused technology on the table. .....“I needed to display several ideas at the same time for discussion. What was particularly frustrating was the inability to jump from one idea to another while teaching. I either had to flip through multiple slides or just use the chalkboard,” explained Michelle. A solution that took advantage of existing technology yet supported flexible discussions was needed. Out of this came Vimodi, a new category of app to support visual mobile discussions.
