I cannot see how to maintain the link to the home course gradebook in MP when I have two different classrooms for the same course - am I missing something?5 votes
You can switch the classroom for a course at any time during the semester; go the course settings page to adjust this when you switch physical classrooms.
I teaching general and organic chemistry classes, and the ability for students to draw chemical structures is a strength of the LC software. However, the current drawing resolution severely limits the types of structure drawing possible. This seems reasonable for someone drawing on a phone, but it should be possible to draw higher resolution images using a tablet or laptop.21 votes
We are investigating adding an option that will allow you to preserve the original (larger) size of an image that you upload, either for display purposes or to provide a larger background image for students to draw on. (Currently we make uploaded images smaller both to save bandwidth and to provide consistency of experience between laptops, tablets, and smartphones.)
I’d be interested in hearing from folks that have voted on this issue: what are the largest image dimensions that you would envision wanting to use in a question?
Makes it easier for the student to use the platform anytime they feel for it345 votes
I’m interested in hearing more from folks that have voted for this idea. Can you tell me more about the advantages you see of a native iPhone app over the mobile web app that LC provides today?
This would be a question where students could enter in a sequence of numbers of specified length. For example, if I want students to enter in the components of a vector in R3, it would give them three blanks into which they type numbers. Again, like the existing "numerical" type but with multiple blanks (the number of which is determined when the question is created).18 votes
A workaround for now is to use an expression question and have students enter the vector components in ijk notation, e.g., i – 2j + 3k for (1, -2, 3).
If I have used this site as an authoring tool, and wish to use the same question in other environments/publications, it would be very nice to not have to retype everything...18 votes
Great idea — I’ve added this to our list of ideas to look at for our development roadmap.
in the module palette permitting instructors to a "drag and drop" feature to allow one to copy or move questions between modules
the only recourse at present is to copy a complete module and delete unwanted questions
"dragging and dropping" a circle in the module window (attached) would be very beneficial I think13 votes
Thanks for this feedback. You can copy or move individual questions (although not via drag and drop) — go into the source module, click the gear icon next to the question you want to copy/move, and then there is an option for copying/moving.
Not directly, but you can use the “student ID” field however you choose; you could embed a code there that indicates the TA.
