Enable multiple lecture periods on same day to facilitate transferring courses from F/W to Spring, etc.
When transferring a course from a regular Fall/Winter semester to a Spring/Summer term, two days need to be combined into one section. Going in the opposite direction, one day needs to be divided into two sections. If we could simply have two lectures on a given day (which is actually the way we teach classes in the Spring), the required changes would be considerably simplified.
In other words, on the first day of class in the Fall (e.g., Monday) I
teach Lecture 1. On the next class day (e.g., Wednesday) I teach Lecture 2. In the Spring I teach Lecture 1 the first hour (e.g., Monday) and Lecture 2 the second hour (also Monday, but an hour later). In Learning Suite, I have to combine Lectures 1 & 2 into the same "lecture." But it would be much more helpful to leave it as Lecture 1, followed by Lecture 2, on the same day, etc.
This is a great idea! I will submit your request to be reviewed by the Learning Suite team. You will be notified of any plans for implementation.
