  1. Copy multiple modules at one time to another course

    I need to copy all 59 modules from one LC course to another specific course without having to go through the horribly tedious copy process of each module (which will take over 2 hours of continuous "selecting" from dropdowns)!!!! Copying a course in its entirety is NOT an option for me as the receiving course is linked to a Modified Mastering course. Another option would be to take a copy of an existing LC course and make IT the linked course (not currently possible according to 24/7 Support).

  2. Show bigger "uploaded images" when reviewing answers

    The current "upload image" questions are great for situations where students need to sketch and annotate their sketches. In particular for out of class assignments.

    Unfortunately the image size when reviewing the answers is too small to read most average size handwritings (on a photo of a letter sized paper).

  3. Group students in a session even if they didn't submit an answer to the current question

    Currently, if no answer was submitted, there's a message "You are not sitting close enough to any students to be grouped" if you didn't answer the current question, which forces students to submit a dummy answer if they couldn't figure out the problem.

  4. Allow individual students access to complete session late

    Students with excused absences could still have the opportunity to participate/complete homeworks on LC if there were an instructor option to reopen the session to allow only specific students access to session questions.

  5. Have questions worth fractions of a point.

    I would like to be able to have each day's learning catalytics activities to be worth 1 point total. I would therefore like to be able to set each question to be worth a fraction of a point so all added together would be worth 1 point total.

  7. Allow instructors to show results to students even if not all students in the class have gotten their answers in yet.

    Not all instructors grade, and it takes a long time to wait for all students in very large classes to poll in. Sometimes having results from 75% of the students is enough to discuss and move on. If the poll can keep running to collect answers, then all students can be counted for participation even if they have already seen results. Poll Everywhere does this and it allows me to move through class much faster in some instances.

  9. add a feature to allow instructor to see all student names on the seat map simultaneously

    The instructor will be able to see the name of every student in every seat, which will help them to match names with faces.

  10. Open "teacher deck" on another device

    I would like to present from my desktop and have the teacher view and control from an ipad or second device. PearDeck has the option to "open teacher deck on another device". I'd like to be able to do the same thing here.

  11. Add a "Do not allow students to review their performance on this module" option to the Synchronous Response modality

    If "Do not allow students to review their performance on this module" is checked, it does not show the session for this module in the list of older sessions that students can review.

  12. Allowing instructors to copy modules created at other colleges/accounts

    Like many of us, I teach at multiple colleges. It would be a huge time saver to be able to copy modules that I have created in my other accounts (colleges). Yes, I could search the library; however: a) it takes forever; and b) I have private content in my modules I wish to access. I don't have time to reinvent the wheel.

  15. Student Preview Mode

    Have a student preview mode so that before the session is launched, we can test new questions to see how students will enter answers and ensure the question is being graded correctly.

  16. Add sum to data collection question type

    The data collection question type currently returns mean, etc. It would be helpful to also get sum data in the case when students are providing tally data.

  17. Allow a "multiple numerical" question type

    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. Provide response counts in addition to percentages in the bar graph of real-time responses

    The bar graph of responses (in real-time during delivery, and after closing delivery) shows percentages of the total number of responses. I'd like for it to also show the raw number of responses. This would allow me to do some quick math is the responses are numberic.

  20. Create a "Program Code" question type

    The Long Answer question type is not useful for asking students to input a snippet of computer program code for an answer. The L.A. type strips out multiple spaces that a student may enter for indenting lines of program code. The response the instructor sees on his/her screen is all left-justified, which is difficult to analyze or to show to the class. A "Program Code" question type should preserve all spaces for viewing. Ideally, it should also use a monospaced font so that columns line up.
