  1. Ability to view all classes without being enrolled

    When trying to determine which classes to take, it is very helpful to be able to see the syllabi and schedules of various classes that we are not yet enrolled in.

    • Ability to adjust vertical spacing in text.

      Ability to adjust vertical spacing in text. For example, tables that are copied into the syllabus have a double spaced vertical height per row making them twice as tall as they need to be.

      • View Average as Percentage

        It would be really helpful to be able to view the average grade on assignments as a percentage instead of just a pt. value in the normal window (right now, you need to right click on each assignment and choose "view statistics."

          • Add fast grading buttons to the exam grading interface.

            Maybe a quick 'full credit' button that you can press instead of scrolling, stopping, typing points, and saving for each question. Half credit and no credit might be nice too.

            • Allow deletion of multiple days on the schedule. Such as delete all Mondays etc.

              My schedule shows all days of the week, yet we only meet once a week. Please make an easy way to set-up or delete many days of the week.

                • Expand the question text to full screen and have scroll bars for when it doesn't fit

                  When I added an embedded image to a Learning Suite question, the small question box wouldn't scroll to enable me to edit it very well. I had to switch to HTML mode to add text to the end. It would be nice if I could expand the question text to full screen and had scroll bars for when it didn't fit. I have attached an image of the question when I was trying to edit and what it looked like after I added the rest of the text in HTML mode.

                  • allow instructors to customize dashboard

                    Right now, the dashboard contains announcements and the schedule. This is not that useful to me. I am posting material in a content page that I feel needs to be on the front page of the course. Sometimes the content that I want on the front page will change at different points in the semester. It would be nice for professors to have more complete control over the front page on learning suite. Students sometimes have a hard time finding information because it is hidden from the front page.

                    • Email to a group

                      It would be great if I could select a group and send an email to that group alone.

                        • WebServices Interface

                          Have a webservices interface to gradbook (and possibly other services). Then we could write our own external content and question types and post the grades back to LearningSuite.

                            • Change syllabus default to view instead of edit after it has been created.

                              The default for the instructor is as if each time he/she goes onto Syllabus.byu.edu that our goal is to set up a new syllabus. Why can't the default view be adjusted to going directly to a specific point of entry (as is possible with Blackboard, Instructure/Canvas, etc.)?

                              • Completed/Not-Completed Grading Scheme

                                These options would allow her to score an assignment in Gradebook in such a way that students would see a check mark next to that assignment in the Grades page, notifying them that it had been completed, but would not see their grade. Students would see only the notification that the assignment had been submitted and completed. Additionally, the Professor could also stamp the assignment with a "partially completed" or "not completed" icon.

                                These options would allow the professor to keep track of "sub-assignments" that are part of an overall project and then, after all the sub-assignments had been completed,…

                                • Put in a disclaimer when previewing exams in student view that the students cannot see the exam until the open date

                                  Garrett said "I thought I was viewing the site as a student would. It would be helpful to include this information in the page help or have a disclaimer in the "Student View" that states that the exam list page is an exam preview mode and that the previews are not available for student viewing."

                                  He would like some sort of disclaimer when viewing exams in student view that let people know that students won't actually be able to view and take the exam before the exam start date. Since in student view the professor\TA is able to view the…

                                  • Set a date for when students can no longer see answers to exams

                                    set a close date on when exam answers are visible. So what he wants is to have a quiz available for a week. After the students take the quiz he wants them to see their answers and the right answers, but only for one week after the quiz. He doesn't want the questions available all semester since he uses quiz questions for his exam pools. He wants to avoid students cramming and his questions leaking between semesters.
