Link or view of Professor's personal class websites
I really hate it when Professor's choose to have their own website for their classes. The ideal solution would be to require all Professor's to use learning suite (It get's messy when three classes are on Learning Suite and the other two are on their own websites).
Since it is likely not possible to require this, it would be really nice to have Learning Suite accommodations.
Option #1 (Easier)
Since the Learning Suite is often not published when a Professor has an external website, it would be very helpful to at least link to the external website when you click on an unpublished class.
Option #2 (Best)
Have it link to the external website, but also provide a simple iframe that displays the external website in Learning Suite under the class tab. This would at least give some easy way for a professor to use Learning Suite.
Problems with suggestion:
There is an issue I realized, and that is that sometimes professors use Learning Suite for grades only, but still have everything else on an external website. Option #1 will not work in this case. Usually, there is a link when a professor does it this way, but it's ALWAYS hard to find, and I just have to make a bookmark myself. Option #2 will still work in this case, since there would be an "External Website" tab that would be standard and familiar to Learning Suite users (Students and professors).
Thank you for your suggestion to improve Learning Suite! Your enhancement request has been added to our ticketing system. Redmine #275.
