  1. Notification system for graded assignments.

    It would be cool to have a notification system for graded assignments. The idea being that you could click on an assignment and ask to be emailed when your grade has been entered.

    • Allow me to temporarily create/add assignments in the "What if calculator."

      Not all teachers post assignments on Gradebook before they are submitted. It would be nice if I could add in the final to get a better idea of my position in the class.

      • Add the section number of the class onto LS.

        In essays and so forth you sometimes have to put your section number on the assignment. It would be much more convenient if the number was under the name on each tab. Example: "ECON 110" with "sec 002" right underneath it with smaller characters . You could also add it on the "All Courses" tab under "Course List." One or both of these would be more convenient and probably very easy to do.

        • Include "REPORT ABUSE" Feature in Messaging

          Many of us have seen abuse of the messaging system. This can include everything from people making irrelevant small talk in a chat for the entire class down to students being bullied because of political affiliation. There are cases of students arguing and name calling in a class message thread. These things are certainly and abuse of the system and can be an abuse of individuals. Online abuse is serious and abuse of the system is annoying. It should be reported properly. Reporting would include a notification to the professor and possibly to LS admin.

          • Show all TA open lab hours in a weekly schedule format.

            All of the TAs open lab hours are listed beneath their names, but it would be more helpful to see the list in a weekly calendar format. Sometimes a student doesn't care which TA has which hours, they just want to know if there will be a TA in the open lab before they make the trip to campus. If a class has multiple TAs in multiple places, then the system can sort by the room location of the office hours.

            • Integrate Learning Suite and gradebook into the BYU app.

              Make Learning Suite and Gradebook accessible in the BYU app. As of right now, gradebook is not viewable on handheld devices, Brainhoney has something to do with that I think.

              • Submit multiple files in one assignment link

                As both a student and a TA, I would really appreciate if more than one file could be submitted in an assignment link so all of them could be uploaded to turn in and then downloaded to grade from one place. Essentially, this would look like attachments to an email.

                For the classes I TA, I had to set up a class email for my students to submit their tax returns (which are on several different forms) because that was the easiest way to see all of their work at once.

                • Have a "sent history" on the email tab so that I can look back at past messages I have sent.

                  I'd like to be able to look back on the emails I've sent through Learning Suite for things like drafted emails that were never sent, emails I have sent, and emails that might not have gone through.

                  • It would be great if the messages had an escape key that worked so you didn't have to find it and click it.

                    It would be great if the messages had an escape key that worked so you didn't have to find it and click it. Also, none of the professors use the page correctly and put random things in random places, is there a way you could "teach" them what the categories are and when to use them?

                    • Learning Suite Quizzes Should Save Automatically!!! (Or at least have a save button)

                      In the days of Gmail, when you can't got three seconds without your email draft being saved, how hard can it be to have Learning Suite save your work as you go?

                      Even if that is for some reason too complicated, couldn't we at least add a save button? I've had Learning Suite lose my work 4 times now when I click submit. Do you know how frustrating that is on a short answer quiz? It is possibly the most demoralizing feeling one could have, next to the emotions I felt when waking up this morning and seeing the ground…

                      • Have the combined schedule default to 7 days showing after chosen

                        Duplicate:
                        1. Log in to Learning Suite
                        2. Click on combined schedule
                        3. Click on 7 days to show 7 days (top right corner)

                        After I log out or move pages and then go back to the combined schedule, I would like it to have stayed on showing the 7 days, rather than going back to 5 days and always reclicking on 7 days.

                        • Clean Printout of Schedule

                          When I want to print out the schedule for my class folder (hard copy), the print preview includes the tabs and other items that makes the printout messy.
                          It would be great to have button that creates a printer friendly version of a class schedule, without the tabs and navigation buttons.

                            The new italicized text in Learning Suite looks terrible. Let's go back to the standard.

                              Have different colors for the submit and next question buttons.

                              Have confirmation like " Are you sure you want to submit this exam?"

                              I clicked the wrong button after the first exam and it submitted! Got a really bad score on that one!

                              • Personal background

                                I rather like the idea of having a personal background on learning suite that appears on the homepage. My wife uses BYU Idaho's brain honey and that is one of the options. It looks awesome and would add a nice homey touch to an otherwise sterile page.

                                • Pdfs open in browser instead of downloading.

                                  The way the pdf attachments are designed in learning suite, they default to downloading instead of opening within browser pdf viewers. This happens independent of browser, browser settings, and OS.

                                  • The iCalendar feed to stop listing classes and assignments as All-Day events.

                                    The iCalendar feed would be vastly improved by listing the class at the time it was taught during the day rather than listing each class as an All-Day event. Also, it would be great if the assignments or classwork associated with each class period was included all in one event, rather than 2 or 3 separate All-Day events.

                                    • Have a download all and/or selectable items to download in the content section, rather than just downloading things one at a time.

                                      A download all option would be nice for content, but a selectable multiple download would be even better!

                                        • Allow message forwarding

                                          Allow a message sent to one person on LS to be forwarded to someone else. I had to message an assignment and didn't know we had a TA, so I sent it to the teacher. Now I need to send it to the TA, and it is very difficult without forwarding.
