Allow instructors to reopen sessions
I made a self-paced module for my students that was supposed to stay open until September 2. There was a glitch in Learning Cataltyics that made the session close on August 31.
I spent over an hour on the phone with technical support with no resolution as to why my session was prematurely terminated or what I could do about it.
It would be helpful if instructors had the ability to reopen a particular session ID, so that if there are glitches like this, they don't have to give students a different session ID number. Having to pass out multiple session IDs is confusing for students and makes things more complicated in the instructor's gradebook.
I use LC to help manage a class of 150 students. A feature of the course I teach is that the students earn extra credit points that they can use to spend on things like bonus points towards exams. I use LC as a way for them to let me know exactly how they would like to spend their points. I had a session scheduled to end today at 23:59 and it ended much earlier than that. Now I have to deal with two separate gradebooks.
I have experienced a session ending prematurely twice this semester.
I agree. I had some issues and my MyMathLab Gradebook is a mess with the extra sessions that I cannot delete from that end.
