  1. Sort TA hours by the day of the week.

    Currently, TA office hours display by however they're entered - so if Friday's hours are entered in the first line and Tuesday's are on the second line, Friday's display first. Once saved, they should sort according to day of the week, not how they were entered.

  2. Team functionality for students

    I really need teams functionality. I know that is on the drawing board. I use team-based-learning and the the digital delivery of team work is awkward when I can't group students into teams. This should include a team PEER ASSESSMENT (team maintenance) tool either in the team section or in the exam section.

  3. Place where you could sign up for times to see professor

    Ability to compare available times, or sign up for a particular time to meet with the instructor or TA. Schedule online chat (if LearningSuite had online chats).

  4. Assign different due dates to different groups of students.

    When we have group projects, the groups will present on different dates. I would like to either be able to create an assignment not attached to one date, or be able to assign different due dates for the various groups.

  5. Allow TAs to select which email they use.

    When TAs send an email to the students in the class through LS, allow them to select their personal email account or the generic TA email address set up by the instructor.

  8. Assignable late penalty

    I would rather allow a student to submit late, with a small point penalty as a disincentive, than to bar them from submitting it. The system would automatically assess a point penalty when an assignment is late. You would need four boxes:
    1. penalty amount
    2. score unit (% or points)
    3. time amount
    4. time unit

  9. when you log back in, let me go back to exactly what I was doing, not kicked back out to the course list.

    When we log back in, let us go back to exactly what we were doing, don't kick us back out to the course list.

  10. Option to hide due date for assignments

    The due dates for our assignments vary based on individual section. To allow flexibility, all assignments are currently due last day of class. I would prefer being able to hide this information to avoid confusion.

  12. Make it simpler to see what needs to be graded.

    Put all items to be graded on the instructor and TA dashboard for ease of knowing what remains.

  13. Send email notification when a grade is entered

    I have students who are constantly looking at the grades section for when i have graded an assignment or a test. I think it would be nice to have a messaging setting where students can receive an email when a grade is entered into learning suite. There should also be an option where the professor can disable this if they feel the need to.

  14. Add a defined date for late assignment submissions

    Example: An assignment has a due date of November 15, but I allow late assignments (with a penalty) for one week following the deadline. I would like to be able to select "Allow late submissions" and then have a choice for how long the late papers can be submitted. In this example I would mark Nov 22 as last day for late work. The system would mark files from Nov 16-22 as late and on the 23rd would not allow any more assignment uploads.

  16. Assign grades to Groups of students

    We do a lot of team work besides individual assignments. It would be very useful to assign a score to the entire team at once because there is only one submission per team. This could be according to the Digital Dialog Groups or some other functionality enabled in the grader.

  17. Give students the ability to just view files instead of downloading them.

    When posting a document to a discussion group it gives the students a button that will download the file for them. There are two issues with this approach - They may be on a device or in a location where saving is not appropriate, helpful or available (on an iPad, for example). The suggestion is that we give them more than one button - perhaps a "View" and a "Save As"

  18. survey

    Would be nice to have a survey option in the exams. If selected, there would be no "correct" answers required and individual student responses would not be visible. (only show the statistics on the answers). The instructor only sees who has completed the survey. Ideally, you could give some credit for completion alone.

    It would need to be labeled as a survey rather than an exam so that students would recognize the difference.

  19. Exams > Questions > new questions > open response > response gets credit based on word count

    Exams > Questions > new questions > open response. Allow for the option to have open response questions graded automatically based on word count. Currently this question type allows for an instructor to set a word limit, but it would be more helpful if it allowed for one to set a minimum word count for students to receive full credit.
