  1. 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.

    • 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…

              • sort grades by date

                it would be great to be able to sort assignment by date, regardless of category. the categories are nice for grading, but its really easy to miss an upcoming assignment because its hidden in a category at the bottom that is rarely used

                • Administrative Employees going to school and Instructor View

                  This isn't a huge problem. However, I am an administrative employee who is working on a bachelor's degree. When I go to learningsuite I see a link to go to instructor view (even though I am not an instructor). Clicking on this link doesn't actually give me any more access than normal. It just seems like a bug to me. I originally submitted this as an incident, but they told me to submit it as an enhancement.

                    • Add a "Mute" option or something similar to Learning Suite messages.

                      Sometimes people just are chatting or posting unnecessary messages on the messaging system, which go to ALL the students in the list.

                      • Remove Default "Drop Low Scores"

                        Being a new student, I was freaked out to see my exams all crossed out and my course progress showing all zeros! Please remove the default check mark in the "Drop Low Scores" box and just make it an option.

                        • 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

                              • Change/remove full page popup views (mail, reading feedback)

                                When you click on the mail icon in the top right, it doesn't take you to a new page, it hides the current page with a section that acts like a page. The 'x' in the top right is really bizarre for web applications (at least when it isn't apparent that there is something behind it). Reading feedback on an assignment is the same way. It makes you feel like you've navigated to a new page, when you really haven't.

                                One of the issues with this design pattern is the browser's back button. When a user's view changes from one…

                                  • 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.

                                        • Have a "sent history" on the email tab so that I can look back at past messages I have sent.

                                          I'd like to be able to look back on the emails I've sent through Learning Suite for things like drafted emails that were never sent, emails I have sent, and emails that might not have gone through.
