  1. Ability to add photos/pdfs to announcements

    Most announcements I want to make come with an image, flyer, pdf that I want to add.

  2. Late option for quizzes

    Include the option of allowing students to complete a quiz late. Even better, include the option of deducting points or a percentage for each day late.

  3. Managing multiple sections

    It would be helpful if instructors could group all available sections together when posting the content, but could then allow TAs the option of customizing their own sections after that. Otherwise, I'm required to separately post all 14 sections using the copy content function. This would be fine except that the copy content function apparently changes the schedule for each section based on each section's meeting time. So if customization isn't an option, can there be an override of the system's schedule adjustments when copying content? Something like, "Maintain scheduled dates when copying content?" or something?

  4. Enable assignments in which students can post their own grade.

    I would like students to be able to report their own grade on assignments like readings (without having to upload an attachment).

  5. Select whether grades are released to students after they have been entered

    Sometimes you want to wait until grades are entered for the entire class or all the assignments until you release them for students to view. Or maybe you want to return an assignment before releasing grades.

  6. Add support for right-to-left languages

    Our course websites were much more effective when we could include (and ask students to produce) material in the target language on the site.

    Learning Suite still provides no support for right-to-left languages.

  7. Speed up inbox load time

    Learning Suite seems to load all messages at once when I click on the inbox icon, but I'm usually only concerned with clearing the new message indicator by viewing my most recently received messages. I'd rather it load messages individually, on-demand, than all at once.

  8. Button to hide/unhide site header

    Simple UI request: add a button to hide the site header, much like the one on the scrolling header and footer on scriptures.lds.org. It's kind of big (takes up about 1/4 of usable space in my browser).

  9. Internal Linking System

    It would be great if Learning Suite had an internal linking system (for example, allowing an announcement to link to content/assignments). Currently, it appears only external URLs can be posted.

  10. Autosave message drafts

    I use group messages to provide feedback on assignments. Twice today I've had to retype extensive messages because Learning Suite (unlike, say, Gmail) doesn't autosave the text input--once due to a logout even after I clicked the "keep working" button. This would be a very helpful feature to add.

  11. Make it easier to find files you've uploaded in previous classes

    In the current configuration, instructors have two options for uploading files into folders under the content tab. One option is to upload the file from the instructors PC, the other is to MANUALLY scroll through a list of files that have already been uploaded at some prior time. The problem with the latter option is that in many cases, instructors have hundreds of files they've uploaded on different occasions. I the instructors tries to upload a one of the files from his/her PC, there is an error message that says you must scroll through the enormous list of files you've…

  13. Copy rubrics within a course

    I use the same rubric for different assignments. However, the assignments have different scores so I need to adjust the point values on each rubric. To accomplish this, I've had to create a new rubric for each point level and re-type all the criteria descriptions. Is it possible to allow copying of rubrics so I don't have to re-type everything? I realize that I could use weighted scores, but the way my course is set up that is not the best option.

  15. Digital Dialog - student list

    When viewing Digital Dialog from the student perspective (instructor view), please give options for how to list the discussions, e.g. alphabetical, number of replies, date, original order, etc. It is difficult to see what I'm trying to find when it seems like a haphazard listing.

  16. Equation editing

    I need equation editing, but I typically use MathType (an enhanced version of equation editor) instead of LaTex or some other markup language. Some ability to interface with that would be nice. I'm not sure yet on how well it cuts and pastes in from Word.

  17. Scrubber bar

    It would be nice if a "scrubber" bar could be added to posted videos so that students can skip to desired parts or rewatch specific parts.

  18. Ability to email by classes, semesters/terms, groups within classes

    More ability to choose who we email. I need to email 3 of my four classes the same thing but can only chose to email all students together or by the individual class. Please let us chose what classes to email.

    Furthermore, I'd like to email students in upcoming semesters/terms, I'd like that option.

    Lastly I'd like to create groups within a single section of a class. the 32 students are divided into groups of 4. I would like to be able to group these students to email them in one go rather than selecting the 4 each time I…
