  1. Don't lock message replies at end of semester

    Today is the first day of classes for the 2014 Spring Term. However, I am still grading 2014 Winter Term, and grades are not due for another few days. Because the term is technically "over", the messages in 2014 Winter Term are "locked" so that I cannot reply to students. This is happening during the critical time when students are sending me messages about their final grades.

    Please don't lock any messages for any terms. This is not a feature, it is a bug.

    If you insist on locking messages, for some reason, at least wait until 2 weeks after…

  2. Schedule needs option to turn holidays on or off

    For study abroad programs (or other courses) that do not follow American holidays, it would be helpful to be able to turn those holidays off in the course schedule. In some instances, study abroad programs hold classes on American holidays, but the Learning Suite schedule doesn't currently allow for content to be put into that space.

  4. More options with attendance in grades

    Please add a tardy option with attendance.

    Also, please add a "note" option with daily attendance. For example, in dance and other participatory classes, students may be present, but 'sitting out' due to an injury. I would like to be able to track that in Learning Suite for both instructor and student benefit.

  5. Content View Statistics

    Provide statistics on how many times a given content page has been accessed, per semester if possible. A page with lots of view may contain extremely helpful material, or it may contain material that is difficult for students to understand. A page with few views may be worthless, or the students might not know about it. Whatever the case, view statistics would provide another form of anonymous feedback from student to teacher.

  6. Create an Instructor Section for Content

    It would be very convenient to be able to store instructor/TA content such as solutions on Learning Suite with other course materials. At present you can make an unpublished page, but then you have to use the 'preview' for links to work.

  7. Link to another website-add area for professor provide instructions or other text

    When a new course is created an the option is to use Learning Suite or to input the web address that will take students outside of Learning Suite, it would be helpful if there was a space for the professor to provide instructions about that link. Currently, a teacher can only input the link without providing any contextual clues.

  8. Quantitative Exam Questions

    Allow questions with numerical answers which are checked for being within a certain tolerance of the correct answer (relative or absolute). The questions show allow scientific notation to handle large and small numbers such as 1.2e23 of 1.9e-7 (or an equivalent format). Include the option to have each student have different numerical parameters in their question so that students get randomized numerical questions.

  9. When the schedule is viewed on a phone in student view, the content can get cut off if it's long and the phone is in portrait position.

    Can you make it so that this doesn't happen?

  11. Give instructors the ability to open an exam for someone to take a second time, either in an exception, or otherwise.

    Curently there is no way for instructors to let a student take an exam again if there is a reason to do so. LS could program an exception option, or some other way of re-opening the exam for a student so they can take it again.

  12. Add the standard windows keyboard shortcut for adding a link

    Add the standard windows keyboard shortcut for adding a link (Ctrl + K) to correspond with the linking feature on posts and announcements. We already have standard shortcuts enabled for Bold and Italics. Why not linking?

  14. expand the answer boxes for fill in the blank questions

    In LS exams, allow the fill in the blank answer boxes to be larger (like for open response)

  15. Allow dual professors tablet access to LS

    I team-teach a class with another professor. We can both access LS on our computers, but I can't access it on my tablet because he's listed as the first instructor.

  16. Need to convert hidden columns to not hidden on "Schedule"

    I need to convert hidden columns to visible columns. Once hidden columns are set up (I guess I did it by accident while importing), there's no way to get them to be visible by students.

  17. File management

    I typically organize files by class. For example hw1.pdf is class dependent. Rather than storing all of the files in a flat directory, organization by class would be very helpful. Also, when updating files, please allow for a replace function. Currently we have to go to home, delete the file, then back into the assignment page to upload the new file.

  18. On the student view

    The student view tells students how many points they've received and also a percentage. If points are in categories that receive different totals, however, then the first of these two numbers is just confusing, and should be removed. For example, a student complained because he has 340/395 points but only an 80% (where, doing the math, 340/395=89%) because the points he missed were on the exam, which are weighted more heavily than homework problems.
