  1. 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

                Add "exceptions" for assignments (just as there are in the settings for exams)

                  • 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.

                          • 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…

                                  • 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.

                                    • 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!

                                        • Pdfs open in browser instead of downloading.

                                          The way the pdf attachments are designed in learning suite, they default to downloading instead of opening within browser pdf viewers. This happens independent of browser, browser settings, and OS.
