  1. Variable playback speed for videos

    Professors often times (especially now with Covid-19 causing online-only learning) post videos to the content tab of learning suite. It would be nice to have a variable playback speed feature when watching these videos in learningsuite. Being able to speed up the video if the professor is speaking really slow, or slow down the video if the professor is speaking too fast, would be helpful. I currently have to download the video to speed up the video playback. I don't want to have to download large videos all the time to watch at a different speed.

  2. Dark Mode

    It would be great to have LS have a dark mode that you can set to activate at certain times or when it becomes night. That way it can avoid strain on the eyes when it's after hours.

  3. Incorporate Microsoft Teams

    It would be awesome if Microsoft Teams were integrated into Learning Suite. It would make group work so much easier.

  4. Ease of use for assignment details

    When clicking on an assignment, the window for assignment details would be easier to work with if clicking anywhere outside the box would close the window -- currently, it's bothersome to click (or tap -- this would especially make things easier for phone use) "close" or the x in the top right corner

  5. Visual Cue of Courses I'm Auditing

    It would be nice to have the tab of the course(s) I'm auditing a different color or some other representation to know that I'm auditing that course. Can't really tell that I'm auditing a course other than remembering

  6. Stop using user's email in FROM field

    I would consider this an urgent LearningSuite request. Please read!

    When LearningSuite sends emails, it extracts the sender's email address from BYU personal information and tacks that address on to the outgoing email in the FROM and REPLY-TO fields.

    A couple of years ago, this wouldn't have been a problem. However, DMARC has become more prevalent; causing LearningSuite emails to be rejected or marked as spam by the recipient's email service.

    (If you don't know what DMARC is, it is essentially a filter that will catch any emails which do not come from servers within the recipient's domain. LearningSuite servers…

  7. Selecting a category in mobile should open up the list of subcategories, not load the page for the first subcategory listed

    As it stands, it is rather unintuitive to have to wait for the first subcategory to load when it is rarely the subcategory I actually want. It would make more sense if when I selected the "content" tab in mobile or half window desktop it opened the list of subcategories allowing me to select from there rather than waiting for "syllabus" to load and then having to go back to "content" to select "exam keys".

  8. Don't automatically switch combined schedule to list view

    When I make my window smaller (like if I have two windows each taking up half my screen), the combined schedule is automatically switched to list mode. I hate this. grid mode works just fine in a smaller window.

  9. Automatically create a to-do list based off of assignments

    Have a to do list that the student can edit. They should be able to edit completion time, add assignments/readings, take away assignments.

  10. Retake Quizzes for Practice

    It would be nice if we could retake quizzes for practice. It won't go towards our grade, but we can take the quiz just like normal as a way to study for tests. It could be an option that the professor can choose to enable.

  11. Show Due Time on Grade Section

    It would be good if it can not only show due date but also the due time. I have been tricked by cases where a particular assignment has the same due date but a earlier due time and not able to submit the assignments on time.

  13. View quizzes without correct answers highlighted

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

  14. Make the Message System pop up without taking up the whole window.

    When I click the message icon from the home screen of Learning Suite, the message window takes up the whole screen. I would prefer the message window to pop up in a modal format, or some other way that doesn't take up the whole screen and that loads more quickly.

    Reason: Often, the messages aren't critical, and it feels like more of a distraction if I "navigate to another window" (which is what the experience feels like) and then realize the message wasn't important and I have to "navigate back". Perhaps the message could open up in a "chat" format…

  16. stats

    Currently, there is a way to view stats for individual assignments, quizzes, exams, etc. There should be a way to view stats for all sections of the class. For instance, how am I doing on the in-class quizzes compared to the class? What about for the written homework? Right now I can only find stats for individual assignments or my overall grade in the class.

  17. E-mail Recipient Warning

    I've sent e-mails to the class before without realizing I had no recipients selected. Can I get a warning if I have no subject or recipient? Where do recipient-less emails even go?

  19. View score of multiple choice separate from Written

    When you finish an exam (with both multiple choice and written responces) it currently shows the score of multiple choice questions with the TOTAL number of points possible. This makes the score appear much lower because the written responses are not yet graded.
    Allow the final score to appear such as : Multiple choice 37/40. Written responses ?/60 .
    rather than currently: 37/100

  20. Show if assignment has been submitted already

    When you submit an assignment through Learning Suite, have a green check or something similar appear so you don't have to click on it again to see if you have already submitted an assignment or not.
