  1. Enable email notification for Digital Discussions in classes which use it

    A few classes I know of use "Digital Discussions" as a kind of forum for discussing the class. It would be nice if I could receive notifications via e-mail when others post, either in general or in only threads which I have commented.

      • Select multiple files to upload at once into Content pages

        Joel noticed when uploading content to his Content tab in Learning Suite that he is only able to select one file at a time to upload. Joel would like to have the ability to select multiple files to upload all at once.

          • Ability to hide a page until a score has been entered on a particular Gradebook assignment

            I often have students who are sick turn in homework late. I would like to make the solution key to the homework available only to those students who have submitted the assignment (and therefore have a score entered on gradebook. Right now LS lets you hide/publish a page based on *date*. I would like to hide page X for a student until there is a score for assignment Y.

            • Jump to student name

              In the BYU grades section, homework score entry could better be streamlined by allowing instructors to type in part of a student's name, and then jump to the first student whose name matches. For example: say I'm currently at the Z section of last names and I want to enter a score for a student whose name is Adams, I just type in an A and the table automatically jumps to the A's, I click the correct student and box, saving me 15 minutes of repeatedly scrolling for 100+ students.

              • Allow learning objectives to be copied when duplicating a course

                When I duplicate a course that I (or someone else) has taught before, the learning objectives are often identical, yet LS won't copy them. I put a lot of work into writing those objectives last time. Also, on large GE courses the department put a lot of work into writing the objectives and I don't have the authority to make up my own objectives. In either case it will be a pain for me to re-enter the objectives in to the new course. Please let me coy them.

                • Allow materials other than the Bookstore items in the syllabus

                  When the Booklist was created, it wiped out ALL of my other materials for the class. I am using electronic library resources and had all of the links and information in the Materials section of the syllabus. I now have to rebuild it from scratch again in the Content section. Either post a warning that the Materials area is ONLY for Bookstore items, or don't wipe out additional materials when the Booklist is approved.

                  • Show open and close date for assigment in the Schedule

                    Assignments that have both a start date and an end date only show the end date on the Schedule. This means that I can only drag-and-drop the end date of the assignments, but have to use the assignment tab and edit each individual assignment to get the start dates correct. In the student view the start dates are shown - the instructor view should also show these start dates so that I can easily visualize how the beginning of each assignment aligns with my other assignments and lectures as well as having the ability to drag-and-drop the start date.

                        • Please integrate LTI into Learning Suite

                          LTI (Learning Tools Integration?) allows integration with other learning tools into your course management system. Blackboard, moodle, sakai and others have this type of integration. If we could have LTI integration in Learning Suite, then it may make some things easier, such as integrating WeBWorK (math homework system) into Learning Suite. WeBWorK currently has LTI integration.

                                • Under "content," when using "insert file," please allow us to replace an existing file

                                  I do something in my class that I suppose is very common: I post my PowerPoint slides under a "content" page. That process is basically fine, but here is the problem: if I make a change in a file and I need to upload the new version to LearningSuite, "insert file" will not simply replace the old version. Instead, it throws an error: "File (filename) already exists." To work around this, I have to go out of my course, go to "my courses" to the file management area, find the correct file (Be careful not to delete the wrong file!),…

                                  • 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.

                                      With the new messaging feature in Learning Suite, can you add a signature option (as you would find in an email client) so that I don't have to constantly complete my signature when I message my students and classes?

                                      • Allow instructors to take an exam and see the scored answers

                                        If I want to take advantage of some advanced scoring options (such as numeric ranges), I would like to ensure that the scoring works properly BEFORE I give the exam to the students.

                                        Unfortunately, when I take the exam, I can't see my answers. So I have to have a TA take the exam, which then lets me see their answers. THis means the TA and I both have to spend time working on the exam, which is a waste of resources.

                                        What is the design reason for not allowing the instructor to see his or her scores on the…

                                        • 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).
