Of course not traffic and sales but they made a nice video about the process from the student’s side which allows us to have a look at the service itself.
YongoPal also invested in a new landing page for the Korean students.
Of course the video is in Korean but still I think you can get a good idea of the booking process in YongoPal. One of the major changes in the system is the Chat Center. Before this implementation users of YongoPal met at TokBox but it seemed to cause some problems. The new Chat Center uses basically the same technology like ChatRoulette (what you don’t remember ChatRoulette? How come?) which means it is a direct peer to peer connection between the two participants without a server that can cause delays and other problems. This is a huge plus for intercontinental communications and as YongoPal is, well, all about communication it’s a no brainer.
The summer break in South Korea started a couple of weeks ago so it is the first big season for YongoPal has begun. I will be catching up with Darien and Jon after the season for a follow up interview on EDUKWEST to talk about their experiences, of course.
