  1. Don't deleting work unless it is submitted even if it's late

    Don't close an assignment's dialog thus deleting a student's work even if the due date has passed. Only wipe out work when it's been submitted. If the assignment late work should not be deleted. If a document is required but a student has written in text it should not be deleted when notifying that a document is actually required.

  2. Stop using user's email in FROM field

    I would consider this an urgent LearningSuite request. Please read!

    When LearningSuite sends emails, it extracts the sender's email address from BYU personal information and tacks that address on to the outgoing email in the FROM and REPLY-TO fields.

    A couple of years ago, this wouldn't have been a problem. However, DMARC has become more prevalent; causing LearningSuite emails to be rejected or marked as spam by the recipient's email service.

    (If you don't know what DMARC is, it is essentially a filter that will catch any emails which do not come from servers within the recipient's domain. LearningSuite servers…

  3. View score of multiple choice separate from Written

    When you finish an exam (with both multiple choice and written responces) it currently shows the score of multiple choice questions with the TOTAL number of points possible. This makes the score appear much lower because the written responses are not yet graded.
    Allow the final score to appear such as : Multiple choice 37/40. Written responses ?/60 .
    rather than currently: 37/100

  4. Eliminate whitespace at the top of the browser

    I have noticed across multiple devices that there is a line of whitespace at the top of the page. I attached an image of this occurring in Safari. I think Learning Suite would look better without the whitespace.

  5. Allow larger files to be attached to assignments.

    My students need to submit large, multi-file assignments for semester-long projects. Currently, the Learning Suite won't accept them, and returning USB flash drives at the end of a semester is a hassle.

  6. Visual Cue of Courses I'm Auditing

    It would be nice to have the tab of the course(s) I'm auditing a different color or some other representation to know that I'm auditing that course. Can't really tell that I'm auditing a course other than remembering

  7. Better Formatting for Written Answers in Exams

    When you enter in a written answer for an exam on learning suite, all formatting is lost when you save. If you added paragraphs or indents, they are eliminated. Instead of an easy to read list of bullet points, the answer is just line after line. Italics and bolding is also eliminated.

    Example of what it looks like after submission: Bullet section: (that was me trying to bold my section of bullet points with a subtitle) •This is my example of how the bullet points just keep going and they are not organized. •Here is my new bullet on the…

  8. Combined Schedule AM/PM

    Every time I try to add an assignment due date to the Combined Schedule, it allows me to change the date and time, however the AM/PM is always seems to be set to AM, even after attempting to change it. It would also be nice if we could edit the time and description when adding the item (perhaps "Add Text" isn't the best wording, either?), rather than typing the title and needing to click on the item again to pull up the edit dialog box.

  9. For Grading: Add a button next to "Score" that fills in a 100%

    I'm a TA grader. Oftentimes, students will get a 100%, or close to that, so having to type in a number for every student takes longer than it could. For example, if the Assignment is out of 50 points, then next to where it says ___ / 50, just add a button that would fill in 50 in the box.

    I've attached an image of a rough mockup

  10. A thought to make the Course List / Schedule / Announcements Flow a tiny bit less confusing...


    • The Course List has data for Past / Current / Future courses while

    • (as far as I can tell), Schedule and Announcements both only contain information for Current courses. That gets confusing when you click on "future" to get information about upcoming courses for the new semester (as it's not the current semester) and then when you hit Schedule or Announcements you get blanks (as I believe they only show info for Current courses--but that's not clear).

    On the Announcements / Schedule, explicity state in the center of the blank screen, "You have no current courses." If you want to…

  14. Unify view of assignment statistics between student and instructor view

    When looking at statistics for a graded item the views differ between the student and instructor view. The student view is much better and I believe when statistics are viewed the student view should appear.

  15. Stay signed in between mobile sessions

    Every time I close and reopen my mobile browser, the cookies from my previous session have been cleared and I have to sign into Learning Suite all over again. The "stay signed in" checkbox is not displaying for me, and the CAS login screen redirects to Learning Suite home after a successful login before my browser's "save password?" dialog can run, so there is no way to even save my password, let alone stay signed in. I'm using the current version of the Chrome mobile browser for Samsung phones, if you want to recreate the problem.

  16. Change modal dialogs into inline interaction

    Often in Learning Suite you are presented with some modal dialog to interact. When you check mail, when you check feedback, when you click on an assignment to view the requirements. All modals do in these cases is add an extra click navigation - to click "cancel" or an "x" to get stuff out of the way, rather than just scrolling.

    Instead, allow the user to go wherever they want at any time, without obscuring half the page with a mini-window. When an assignment is clicked on, the required text/fields can just slide down from where they clicked. This saves…

  18. More Interview Quotes

    I actually really like the quotes from teachers, and would love to see more. The Faculty Center has a really good list of quotes that show how much teachers are thinking about their students well being and growth.

  19. 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.

  20. large data loading gif

    When you click on a side menu option (for example under content and course materials) a loading spinner would be nice for large data. If the data is large it takes a while to load but you have no idea if it is loading or not until the data comes back. Thanks!
