  1. Assignment time to complete

    It would be nice if you could record how much time it took you to complete an assignment, to help you plan for the next time you did that assignment.

    This would allow you to look back and be like: dang, I didn't finish that one, or dang, it really takes 7 hours to do this, I had better put 7 hours in my schedule to work on it to get it done.

  3. Create reply to Digital Dialogue below prompt instead of in front of it

    When I'm responding to a digital dialogue, I would like to refer to the prompt. However, this is difficult to do when the screen for me to type in pops up in front of the prompt. If I want to see the prompt again, I have to discard my progress. It would be better if the text box appeared below the prompt rather than in a popup in front of it. Thanks

  4. Allow added assignments in prioriizer to be checked off

    When I add assignments onto prioritizer, it won't allow me to check them off.

  5. Hide Checked Items in Prioritizer

    I wish I could choose to hide assignments that I have checked off, but haven't yet been scored. I always have to scroll past assignments that I've already finished (or quizzes, etc. I missed that don't have scores) before I get to the ones I need to be working on next.

  6. Show what class an assignment belongs to

    When in the combined schedule, it would be very helpful if the assignment were to show what course that assignment belongs to, as several courses have similar assignment names such as "homework 1"

  7. Items in the assignment listing should be buttons

    Right now, all the assignments in the assignments listing are <div> elements with an onClick event assigned to them. This makes it difficult for screen readers and other accessibility tools to pick up on these items as clickable.

    I have some RSI which makes it difficult for me to use a mouse or trackpad, and I use a plugin called "Vimium" to navigate my browser with vim-like keybindings. It can't detect that these are buttons, so I have to use my mouse which adds a little to my stress.

  8. Integration with Canvas

    Love to see the new "Prioritizer" tab in Learning Suite. It would be great if Canvas could be linked so that assignments from classes that use Canvas would show up on the Prioritizer

  9. UI

    I have worked in frontend web dev or other tech roles for over four years…..and I have never seen a UI this bad, specifically on mobile. Please revert, this is not legible at all. Fonts, colors, alignment, it’s all bad. Literally unusable on mobile. When I load in, there are 10 horizontal borders or page breakers on the screen. Why. (Screenshot attached) This will be an extreme pain for students to use. Please add some simple media queries to fix this, shouldn’t take more than an hour or two if the app was built well. Please contact if you have…

  10. 2011 called. They want their UI design back.

    The new design came out 10 years too late. The ultra-thin fonts and high-contrast colors already make the site look more dated than the old view because the new view is buying super hard into design trends that have already passed. Also the tan navigation bar is just bad. The site makes your eyes work way too hard to see what's going on.

    Make the old student view an option again for those of us who want the simpler version.

  12. Allow students to message each other before Instructor publishes course

    Hey, this would be super great so students can set up study groups together from the beginning, split textbooks, stuff like that. Some instructors post the course so late and by then, everyone has already bought their textbooks alone and paid $500 for books they will use once

  13. More white space in the new layout

    I have noticed with the new learning suite that while it looks nice and modern, it is harder to read the information listed because the font is so big and there isn't as much white space/spacing in between texts. The font before was easier to read visually because it wasn't spread across the entire page and in a basic black color font as well.

    The spacing would especially help on exams when you are trying to read through a lot of information. More white space on the sides, between answers, font that makes it so you don't have to read…

  14. Move the "Save and Exit" button away from the "Finish and Submit" button for online exams

    I have very shaky hands and know that some day I will slip and press the "finish and submit" button when I was trying to click on "save and exit."

    I'm not sure why it was changed in the new version that we students are beta-ing. It was in a great position in the previous version and gave no possibility of accidentally clicking on the wrong button. I'm sure I could email my professor for help, but why even introduce the need for that possibility if the button is moved in the first place?

    I appreciate any help or consideration…

  15. combine spring-summer classes and spring classes in LS

    its really quite annoying to be taking a spring-summer class and not having its tab next to my spring-only classes at the top of LS, so I have go back to all classes and then select the spring-summer. I imagine something similar happens with summer-only classes

  16. Spaces in Assignment Submission Notes

    I would really appreciate it if the notes that accompany assignment submissions could keep the same spacing instead instead of squishing it all together!!! I want my essays to my professors and TAs to look nice and organized, not sloppy!

    This would just be fantastic and maybe not too hard (??)

  17. More graphs for grades

    More statistical graphs for grades would be nice. The graph showing your grade compared with the rest of the class is nice, but I'd like to be able to see a histogram showing the distribution of my own grades for assignments or tests. Also a "weighted" histogram showing the grade for the different assignments, but with color or size showing the worth of assignments on your overall grade would be cool too.

  18. Fix, Beta: When I first pull up LS, it is basically blank

    I would like it to go to All Courses section instead, maybe most optimally the combined schedule, or some other setting set by students/users. This way we can always have a new LS open to something we need to see most, like the awesome newly enhanced combined schedule.

  19. Add a menu to strikethrough, underline, or highlight text in Quizzes

    A menu on the side of the quiz that would give you options to modify your view of the text, such as answers.
    This could be helpful when working through multiple parts of a question, especially larger-scale questions. If you have eliminated one potential answer, you could strike it through. If you think one answer has higher potential than another, but still want to check the others, you could highlight it. If there's a particular section of a question that provides critical information that you want to reference multiple times, you could underline it.
    If this were to be implemented,…

  20. Fix beta Prioritizer filters

    Prioritizer currently shows all assignments and texts regardless to whether they have been turned off. 'Checked off' items should be filterable, though this seems like an early bug more than a final issue
