  1. The progress bar on quizzes should not be fixed on the window

    When taking a quiz, the bar with "back, next page, submit" is fixed to the window bottom so I always see it. This can make users think they have reached the bottom of the page when they haven't. A simple CSS change should be made to keep this at the bottom of the page.
    It would also be nice if before hitting "next-page" or "submit" it alerted me if I had questions that are unanswered.

      • Something similar to Quizlet built into learning suite

        It would be cool if there was a built in program to learningsuite that was similar to Quizlet. We could make digital flash cards, practice tests could be generated from the flashcards etc.

        • Allow students to select semester/term

          The site currently automatically populates with the current semester (which is great), but as another term/semester comes closer I'd like to be able to pull up my full schedule for the upcoming term/semester/see what announcements may be available for all classes in that term/semester, etc. As of right now the only way to do so is by navigating to "Future Courses" and viewing each course individually.

              • FIX Spring-Summer Combined Schedule

                Combined Schedule during the Spring-Summer Semester will not pull up anything, and I have to click "Course List" and tab through my different classes to get the schedules for those classes, which might be because of those classes being Spring Term. It could definitely use a fix to either have a single term combined schedule option or fix it so the Spring-Summer Combined Schedule will include classes from the terms.

                • Cumulative Grade for Subcategories

                  Having a total grade at the top of each subcategory (based on graded assignments only) on the "Grades" tab would be awesome!

                  In classes with lots of assignments per category, this would help students get a feel for where they may need to focus in order to pull grades up.

                  **see attached .png; the red text represents the suggested change.

                  • remove the line: There are no instructor feedback notes for this assignment.

                    The very presence of that sentence is redundant and distracts from useful text.

                    • Like button for comments made within the message threads

                      I like the new message system but I get an inflated number of notifications of students just saying "thanks" to professors or TAs. Only about 1/3 - 1/4 of the message notifications I got last week affected me or had substantial content. Like buttons for comments would significantly cut back on unnecessary and repeat messages.

                      • 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.

                        • Create a discussion/QA tool attached to each test/assignment

                          There are always a million questions for large assignments (Especially finals) and it would be great if instead of needing to go back and forth over email, students could post and group questions associated with a given test or assignment that professors could then answer. That QA spot would become the authority on updated information for assignments and tests and make it so that professors only have to answer questions once--something that I think they'd love.

                          • Quicker Access from BYU Computers

                            This would involve more integration with BYU login for lab and library computers than an actual change to Learning Suite, but it would be time saving to a lot of students if there was a box you could check while logging into a BYU computer that automatically logged you into Learning Suite.

                            • Ability to leave messages (group)

                              Learning Suite messages often start to discuss one thing and end up talking about the most random things. Most often, messages are irrelevant for the majority of the class.
                              It would be nice to have a way for a user to leave these group messages so that they don't have to deal with constant annoyance once a group message has been created.

                              PS: Not sure if deleting/archiving the message does something like that. If it does, how about changing the 'Delete' button to something like 'Delete and Leave message' or something more informative?

                                    • Wiki textbook for certain courses

                                      Okay, the textbook is confusing and the slides for the class don't give all the information, but people have gotten questions answered and pounded out better understanding than the textbook can give (for it is cryptic).

                                      I ask that a ongoing text-wiki-thing be made that allows students to add information about studying for the various modules of a class.

                                      Key features would include:
                                      The professor can edit it
                                      other students can vote up or down the "complete description" that someone submitted (with a reminder that clarity and completeness are what should be valued most).
                                      Things separated into Class days or…

                                        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.

                                        • It would be extremelly helpful to have the ability to print off the schedule (with all the information, due dates, etc.) in calendar format

                                          If the schedule could print in a standard calendar weekly view format, then we would already have a monthly view of all the due dates, assigned readings, etc. rather than having to log in at look at multiple different pages to see the information we need to see. We could also print it out and post it above our desks or in our apartments for daily reminders. Seeing things visually really helps. Thanks!
