Abstract: The Dialogue Design System (DDS) is a management system that facilitates dialogical learning in mass classes at universities. Staff students, who act as mediators between the teacher and participating students, work in teams to organize idea cards collected from participating students, within a theoretical structure. In this system, students develop the competencies that are emphasized by the Tuning Project in Europe and the Assessment of Higher Education Learning Outcomes (AHELO). However, the DDS method cannot be easily implemented because the system is sophisticated, and the staff students mostly work behind the scenes outside class. In order to introduce the DDS model to other teachers and students in universities, operation videos that explain how to manage the system have been produced. In this study, the authors suggest that the DDS operation videos bridge the cultural gaps between traditional and contemporary pedagogies as well as the boundary between Asia and Europe.
