  2. User friendliness needs to be improved in many ways

    1) Creating questions should be much simpler. If I want to have students identify things, I should be able to do multiple locations at once. Why aren't options that allow students to drag "A" "B" "C" etc to appropriate locations available?

    2) Implementation: I want to do class wide "Note Reviews" where students submit answers. Once answers are completed, I share results with class. I would like my students to have access to this session and see ALL responses, not just theirs.
    3) Organizing questions is much more difficult that it has to be. If I screw up the order…

  3. Short Answer - Add checkbox to NOT display "Correct Response" for RegEx questions

    For short answer questions I use regular expression checking to improved accurate grading.
    Unfortunately the Correct Response field containing the regex code is shown in the feedback to students as the Answer. I would prefer to show only the Answer/Explanation when “Consider as Regular expression” is checked.
    NOTE: This only happens in Self Paced and probably Self Test mode. The regex code does NOT appear as feedback in Instructor led mode.
    Please make regex work the same in all question modes.

  4. Increase the types of responses allowed in expression type questions.

    For example, I would like to pose a question in which student respond with a vector <a,b,c>; however the symbols < and > are not allowed.

    Another example, I would like to ask the students for the equation of a circle centered at the origin, i.e., r^2 = x^2+y^2; however the = sign is not allowed!

    This puts an extreme restriction on the type of questions and responses available for these types of questions.

    It has been demonstrated repeatedly that free response questions perform much better at testing a student's knowledge compared to multiple choice.

    Please, please, please fix this…

  6. module homepage - too much load time!!

    When on the module page, there is an extreme time delay as all modules from an entire course are trying to upload the circles with data. A screen shot of this page is attached.

    You are also only allowed to delete one module at a time. This is inconvenient if you want to delete multiple modules as you have to wait for them all to load again on that screen before moving on.
    Please add a setting to NOT load the pie chart data on the home page list. It is not necessary as data can be found within the…

  7. Collapsable module folders

    Be able to organize modules into folders that can be "closed" or hidden when you are not using those modules at other times in the semester.

  8. Change from "pixels" to percentage length of vector for vector magnitude questions.

    For "direction" type questions, if I want to have it graded based on direction and magnitude of the vector, the tolerance for a correct answer is a number of pixels. I have no way of knowing how many pixels a given vector translates to on anyone's device, rendering this option virtually useless. Please just make it so that it's a percentage length of the correct length.

  9. Allow instructors to edit their Institution name in case they made an error initially.

    Many schools have various versions of their names in the LC database. For example "Florida State University" and "FSU." If an instructor chooses the wrong version, they can't see any course maps from instructors in the other. There doesn't appear to be any way to edit the institution later.

  10. change excel headers in download

    Place the point value for a module/column in the header of the download spreadsheet! Currently, the points appear in the online gradebook, but once downloaded to csv spreadhseet, those points are gone from the header and I have to to the online gradebook and transfer that information by hand for each column - arrggh!

  11. Matching Question Options display

    In Matching Questions, the Options that appear in the drop-down menus should be the wording of the Options the question author types in instead of "1st choice," "2nd choice," 3rd choice," etc. It would be clearer to students which option they are selecting.

  12. Make the PPT upload useable

    I tried out the PPT upload option today. Great idea but the execution makes it useless. PPT is so compressed that it's tiny and very low quality. The fonts are messed-up so the text elements overlap. Lack of PPT integration is the number one issue my faculty have with LC and the PPT is too problematic for me to suggest it to them.

    My suggestion is to not compress the PPT files or compress them less so they can be full-screen and high quality. Otherwise this feature is useless.

  13. Set response bars with 0% back to size zero

    Since recently, bars showing the percentage of responses all start with a certain size, even though they represent 0%. This is very misleading and makes it harder for instructors to see if there were actually wrong answers at the end of a question delivery.

  17. Allow changing the due date on an assignment even after the session has launched.

    Allow changing the due date on an assignment even after the session has launched. Sometimes you might want to push back the time a session closes for students but you can't do that without closing down the session currently.

  19. Allow author testing of questions

    For some questions (region, direction) it is often difficult to tell whether you have set up the question properly. It would be great if the author could "test" the question, somewhat like being in student view except just for that question and seeing immediately whether the answer is right or wrong, so that we could play with typical student errors and make sure that they end up being appropriately marked.

  20. Allow students to see the number of points of a question

    Currently, the students see the total number of points only after the session has been closed. It would be helpful, if the students saw the number of points of each question, while it is displayed. This mainly refers to the response type "self paced" (and similar).
