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 (with the option to either be html format or plaintext), point value, etc. I attached a sample input csv.
Using existing spreadsheet functionality I can product the corresponding input csv for my 80-90 assignments in about 15 minutes, but creating those same assignments within Learning Suite takes at least an hour.
This enhancement request has been ticketed. Thank you for your patience. Enhancement Request #7850
Alternatively, a way to enter assignments in a table format where we could tab through the fields, rather than a pop-up box for each one, could help to address this issue. Or, perhaps there could be an option for replicating assignments according to some pattern.
