How can we improve BYU LEARNING SUITE?

Rather than require students to upload their assignments as a PDF/DOC, let them just type their response into a textbox.

This would make grading WAY faster. TAs wouldn't have to download an attachment for each student. They would just see the student's response right there. Let the professor set a maximum word count for the response.

    I agree with Tamara, while it may be integrated into learning suite, It doesn't ever seem to function consistently.

    This feature, if it exists, doesn't seem to function consistently. I have had a lot of students indicate that they can't submit it this way and when they have showed me, I can't figure it out, either! It comes back with an error message saying that a file must be attached.

    What about displaying PDFs and DOCs on the grading page inside a frame?
