  1. 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.

        • 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…

          • Personal background

            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.

            • Create Repeating Events in Calendar

              There needs to be a way to create a repeating event in the combined calendar for things that teachers haven't put there. I want to, for example, put that I have an online math assignment due every tuesday and thursday rather than have to type it in on each day, each week.

              • Move the "send feedback" bar.

                The "send feedback" bar often sits right in the middle of the page, covering important information. It is a bit obnoxious. Could you please move it to the top or bottom of the page? :)

                • 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

                      • Change the order of class tabs

                        We should be able to change the order that our classes are listed in in the tabs at the top of the page. The order they autofill in makes no logical sense.

                          Creating an option to start consolidated schedule on Monday instead of Sunday! All my Sunday assignments are due for the week before it, not after, and it would be nice to be able to see what is due all in the same week all on the same page.

                          • Improve discoverability of assignments

                            I've found it to be a nightmare to figure out what my assignments are for some classes and when they are due. I'm suggesting a more obvious format for assignments.

                            First, assignments should appear more obvious. Quizzes, Learning Suite submission assignments, in-class submission assignments, and other submission methods should appear differently than other posts that teachers make that aren't assignments at all but still show up on the calendar. Currently they all blend together and it's easy to mistake an assignment for a post that just states what the day's lecture covers.

                            Second, a real to-do list. I've seen the…

                            • Half points on grades round up

                              If an assignment has a half point, the score will round up. If you click the stats it will show you the real grade. You should show the real grade in the main grades list.

                              • 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.

                                • 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…

                                    • Learning Suite, you need to change the way videos are updated to LS.

                                      LS needs to change the way videos are uploaded. More specifically, there is no way to rewind or fast-forward in the video. My instructor loaded an instructional video and LS glitched 3x. I had to re-watch the video to get to the exact point to continue the assignment. Wasted an hour of my time because of a simple feature.

                                      • 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…

                                        • Make the Message System pop up without taking up the whole window.

                                          When I click the message icon from the home screen of Learning Suite, the message window takes up the whole screen. I would prefer the message window to pop up in a modal format, or some other way that doesn't take up the whole screen and that loads more quickly.

                                          Reason: Often, the messages aren't critical, and it feels like more of a distraction if I "navigate to another window" (which is what the experience feels like) and then realize the message wasn't important and I have to "navigate back". Perhaps the message could open up in a "chat" format…
