Use Case Series: Education

When we first came up with the idea for Zingtree, we imagined that most of our use cases and primary customers would be tech support related: handling customer service issues, managing tickets, and using analytics to hone in on better ways to help users interact with disparate products and services. Shortly after launching Zingtree however, we realized the diversity of use cases for interactive decision trees was enormous. As a company that loves to learn about how and why people use our products, we wanted to showcase a few of our favorite Zingtree customer types — they come in all shapes and sizes.

Just last month, we got in touch with an associate professor at Brock University in Ontario, Canada. His advanced accounting students have been creating and using Zingtrees in some awesome ways and our professor is branching out to use decision trees for overall class materials, too!

My students and I have been using Zingtree in my advanced Canadian income tax course in our Masters of Accounting program at Brock. We are finding it very user friendly. The students have really gotten into using it to develop decision trees in Canadian tax.

I just completed a tutorial on a subject in Canadian tax using Zingtree. I have asked my students to comment on the use of Zingtree to present course materials. So far, the response has been overwhelmingly positive.

At the end of my winter teaching term I plan on exploring the possibilities of using Zingtree to develop course material.
