Take away the Presidential Message on the LS landing page
As a web developer myself, I'm appreciative of the functionality LS provides--especially the combined calendar. However, the new "Presidential Message" that appears on LS home page takes away from the stark functionality of Learning Suite. Upon loading, it often grabs my attention as it's the only graphic on the page. However, I've noticed that the image and quote often get distracts and derails me from my focus on my assignments. I log into LS with the goal of looking up an assignment. But when the graphic/quote appears, my thoughts are drawn away from navigating to the specific class and I sometimes lose my train of thought.
I've realize now, that I deeply appreciated the white space on the LS home page without realizing it. The white space allowed me to focus on my task at hand without jarring me away with an intruding idea (picture and quote of some speaker).
Thank you for your suggestion to improve Learning Suite! Your enhancement request has been added to our ticketing system. Redmine #8122.
