  1. Get rid of dual authentication

    The dual authentication is annoying. The "remember me for 30 days" feature doesn't work very often. Additionally there are times that we might not have our phone with us, which is pretty much the only way we are able to get in to Learning Suite.

    • Create an icalender feed for assignments (under grades tab), not just for the schedule.

      Not all professors use the schedule tab on LS. However, almost all of them use the assignments section under the "grades" tab. It would be convenient to have a calendar one could subscribe to not only to the listed schedule, but also to the listed assignments.The date listed on the calendar for any given assignment would be the due date, and the event name would be the name of the assignment.

      • Allow assignment submissions via Cloud services (Google Drive, Dropbox, etc.)

        Canvas has that really nice feature that fetches assignments directly from cloud services. That'd be really nice.

        • Combined assignment section

          There should be a section that combines all due assignments for all registered courses on the home page. This would be more efficient and time saving for students.

          • PLEASE LET US OPT OUT OF MESSAGING

            I don't even care about reporting people, just let us leave chats and stop getting notifications. I don't want to filter out all new students, I just want to be able to leave groups of students babbling in their mission languages and insulting each other. PLEASE. It would take like a days worth of coding.

            • Inserting files

              If you insert a file, it comes up as a textbox rather than normal text. This is so annoying they are so hard to arrange.

              • iCal feed URL for Combined Schedule Calendar

                There should be an option to export the Combined Schedule Calendar to eliminate clutter, instead of having to import each and every class' individual schedule.

                • Open links in a new tab

                  Simple request: Have links in assignment descriptions (or anywhere really) open in a new tab. It's annoying to always have to reopen LS or remember to right click/open in new tab.

                  • Don't load > 2MB of JSON when loading messages

                    When loading messages, LearningSuite loads 2MB of JSON. It seems be
                    loading all the recipients and all kinds of extra data for every thread. As a result, it takes forever to load, and I am almost always only interested in
                    the newest messages.

                    The actual text content of the messages I have received probably fits
                    in < 10 kilobytes (definitely less than 100 kb). Load the other stuff dynamically or something.

                    • Make it a requirement for every teacher to use Learning Suite

                      It is really frustrating when a teacher elects not to use it. We cannot see a syllabus online (and sometimes they don't give us a paper one either), we cannot see our grades at all, and we can't communicate with other classmates, just to name a few problems.
                      Last semester I had three classes that didn't use learning suite. I had absolutely no idea what grade I would be given for the classes until final transcripts were due, and one teacher was two weeks late submitting theirs. I feel like the teachers need to be more accountable to the students,…

                        Helpful study aid to go back and review the quizzes without being given the answer automatically, because the quiz was already taken.

                          • BRING BACK FULL MONTH VIEW OF COMBINED SCHEDULE ASAP PLEASE

                            I turned on Learning Suite today to look at my Combined Schedule, and noticed it had changed, and no longer supported a full month view of the schedule, it only allowed for a 5-day view or 7-day view. I always use the Combined Schedule to plan out my future weeks, and I hate having to click through weeks to figure out what's going on, I just want a monthly overview. Please change this back ASAP.

                            • Add keyboard shortcuts

                              The current click-based UI slows down effectiveness. If there were more robust keyboard shortcuts to navigate and interact with Learning Suite my college experience would be entirely revolutionized.

                                  A clear statement such as "This is the end of the exam. Are you sure you want to submit," would be useful to avoid submitting exams prematurely by mistake.

                                      I actually really like the quotes from teachers, and would love to see more. The Faculty Center has a really good list of quotes that show how much teachers are thinking about their students well being and growth.

                                      • Starting consolidated schedule on Monday instead of Sunday!

                                        Creating an option to start consolidated schedule on Monday instead of Sunday! All my Sunday assignments are due for the week before it, not after, and it would be nice to be able to see what is due all in the same week all on the same page.

                                          It would be great to be able to reorder the headers into chronological order instead of alphabetical order. This would also be a fantastic feature in the grid view of the combined schedule, so it was like an actual calendar of my schedule.
