  1. 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.

  2. Have an "available offline" option

    Sometimes on/off campus there is not accessible internet connection (BOTTOM OF JFSB *cough*). It would be nice if the information in Learning Suite could still be accessed offline so that a student doesn't need to wander around their building until they have a wi-fi signal strong enough to last until they have their information open.

  3. Highlight changes that the professor makes so that they are easy to find

    I was working with the CourseSites.com Blackboard webpage that we are using for the organizations until Community Spaces are available, and I saw a feature that is really nice for students and would solve the question--How do students know if something has been updated? The feature was a "What's New" box on the Dashboard of the course. I'll include pictures for you. If can be set to show an internal link to anything on the LS course that has been updated in the past few days (whatever you up there decide is the best time line to display).

    Pictures-- See…

  4. Exams Page, "Status"

    On the "Exams" portion of a class, it'd be extremely helpful if next to close date or actions, there was a status table. Just a simple icon to indicate whether the exam was completed or if you still have to do it. This would be especially helpful since the grades page is so glitchy.

  6. Onscreen icon to show when there are Saturday/Sunday items not showing

    Small, but
    (1) for those that have these items, it would probably be a blessing to not need to hit 7 days every time (making it a persistent changed setting would also change it for this group), but
    (2) for those who don't regularly have Saturday items so it's more of a surprise (so they probably won't have changed the setting out of a desire to keep screen real estate).

    The notification could just be a small red exclamation point or something similar on the right side of the screen at the top of the calendar. *Hovering* would have a…

  8. Backpack

    Create a "Learning Suite Backpack" that would facilitate dumping all LS course files under Assignments and Content onto a flash drive or specific location on a hard drive. I have noticed that I have downloaded the same 80mb file multiple times from one course just so I could access it on different computers. But if a feature like this were added I would only have to initiate one, one-time download at the beginning of the semester in order to have ready access to all my Learning Suite materials. Also, it might be stretching things a bit, but a sync feature…

  9. 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.

  10. View previous exam answers when multiple submissions are allowed.

    When you complete submit an exam that allows multiple submissions it takes you back to the main exam page (with the "Start Exam Now" button). When you click to start it again you get a blank exam, so you either need to save your answers outside LS (generally a good idea anyway) or you start over. It would be nice to (1) see the answers you submitted after submitting the exam and (2) be able to see and edit your old answers when re-starting an exam.

  11. 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.

  12. Let students make blog posts under "Digital Dialog"

    Right now students can only respond to blog posts. In my BIO130 class we have to email the TA our blog posts and she has to upload them one by one onto Learning Suite instead of each student being able to post their own.

  14. Copy and paste iCalendar feed on mobile devices (Android specifically)

    I cannot copy the iCalendar link when viewing Learning Suite on a mobile browser. This seems like a simple fix, but it's very irritating.

  15. Dashboard

    I don't know if this is already possible, but there should be a way to view past posts on dashboard. Sometimes my professors post review material for tests on the dashboard, but as soon as the date passes I can't view it anymore.

  16. 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…

  17. Improve editing of self-added notes/items

    1) Right now if you want to delete a note, you click on it and select "Edit" and then "Delete". This can be a time-consuming process. "Delete" should be moved to the flyout itself, perhaps with a confirmation window if that is a concern (though I think it may not be)

    2) When saving an edit to a previously created note, the button for saving reads "update" (as in C.R.U.D.). It should read "save" for non-technical users.

    3) The ability to change a note's date would be helpful. Right now users are forced to delete each note and then recreate…

  18. 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.

  19. 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".

  20. 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.
