  2. Option to customize calendar items and print

    Students should be able to choose which classes, and which calendar items from those classes (i.e. exams, reading assignments, quizzes, etc.) to include on their centralized calendar. Then be able to print the calendar in week, or month views.

  3. Have keyboard shortcuts for navigation

    Have keyboard shortcuts to quickly navigate through posts and threads (I.e. Like the way you can move from message to message, and from conversation to conversation in Outlook (up and down arrows), being able to collapse and expand conversations with the right and left arrows).

  4. Create assignments from a spreadsheet or csv

    In the courses I work with (as a graduate student instructor) I often need to create assignments for every day of the semester, but with different titles, point values, and descriptions. However, there is a pattern to the items that I can easily produce in a program like excel (for instance the description contains a hyperlink that is based on the assignment title).
    I would like to be able to upload a spreadsheet with my assignments and have learning suite create assignments based on the information. Specifically, I would like the ability to enter an assignment title, due date, description…

  5. Adjust columns on Gradebook

    The columns should be adjustable in Gradebook. If there are too many, than it only shows the first part of the name, which is problematic when they start with similar names.

  6. Allow bold print and underline in messages

    Bold print and underline fonts in messages would allow emphasis of important words I want my students to make sure they've noticed/read.

  8. Add a way to re-order the announcements

    I sometimes post an announcement that I want students to see right away; i.e., I want that announcement at the top of the stack. Concurrently, I may have other, separate announcements to post (or in the following day or two). I would like a way to re-order the posted announcements (similar to how you can rearrange the assignments in that section) so that I can keep the short-term, priority message at the top of the stack.

  9. Please allow me to "turn off" the feature that shows students what grade they are getting in the class.

    Please allow me to "turn off" the feature that shows students what grade they are getting in the class. Two reasons. 1. Learning Suite does not calculate my course grades the way I want it to (my system is pretty complex), so the reported grade is always wrong. But I like to use L.S. so that students can see that I've correctly entered their scores. 2. There are too many students who panic because L.S. will tell them they are failing when only a few assignments have been entered (half of their grade comes in the final, so it's not…

  10. Don't collapse titles of assignments in column headings

    In the "Scores" screen, the column headings (which correspond to individual assignments) are collapsed so that only the first 8 characters show, making it extremely difficult to know which assignment corresponds to which column. If the assignment titles must be collapsed, I'd suggesting making the entire title visible when the user clicks on the little arrow in the column heading. This has been a major frustration.

  11. Put a "Leave Conversation" option on the messaging system.

    I am in a few big lecture classes and also TA for a few big lecture classes, and when students start chatting with each other I end up with 50-60 new messages every time I open Learning Suite, none of which are relevant to me. It clogs up things and makes it hard to find what a professor or TA actually posted. Please make an option to leave the conversation so that I can get out of irrelevant information filling up all my space. Thank you.

  12. Allow comments on rubric

    I appreciate the addition of a rubric. Canvas has a nice feature on its rubric where instructors may add comments to each student's individual rubric. The criteria option on the current LS rubric is helpful, but I would prefer to be able to add personal comments.

  14. Mobile Ready for Gradebook

    Learning Suite needs to be mobile ready, ALL OF IT! Having the option to use iPad when entering grades into the gradebook would be helpful. NOT having the option to use learning suite on any device should not be an issue in 2017. Accessing grades, content, syllabus and list of students via any device is needed.

  15. I really wish that I could LOCK the Overall score column so I can always see it while I am scrolling through all the columns.

    As I am "massaging" a students various assignment scores, if I could lock the Overall Score column in place, I could watch how any changes affect the overall score.

  16. Ability for students to upload files in exams

    Some exams would be enhanced by the ability of students to attach files of graphs they have created or other similar things.

  17. Allow the instructor to designate/limit TA access to LS

    I have a TA I would like to have limited access to LS, for the purposes of syllabus refinement, etc. I would like to be able to limit/prevent access to the gradebook.

  18. Enable email notification for Digital Discussions in classes which use it

    A few classes I know of use "Digital Discussions" as a kind of forum for discussing the class. It would be nice if I could receive notifications via e-mail when others post, either in general or in only threads which I have commented.

  20. Select multiple files to upload at once into Content pages

    Joel noticed when uploading content to his Content tab in Learning Suite that he is only able to select one file at a time to upload. Joel would like to have the ability to select multiple files to upload all at once.
