Please let us know what should be improved here.

  1. Record observational tasks

    We use Eliademy for theory based learning, but as part of the learning process there are a number of practical activities. I would like to setup a series of tasks for the student, I would then like to be able to record their progress on these tasks providing a percentage complete and a short comment. I would like to be able to do this using a mobile device and for that to update the site.

    The progress would be recorded in the candidates course record showing all the tasks either quizzes or observed practical tasks. Combine this with a pass…

    Thanks for the idea!

    We are planning to improve quizzes during winter/spring on next year. New time of questions, random sets, time limitation and instant feedback/hints from teachers is something we want to add as soon as possible.

    We will try to incorporate your idea as well.

  2. Providing feedback, ordered by incorrect and correct

    The instructor should be able to see when an attempt has been taken and any incorrect history by the candidate for a specific item so that they can provide custom feedback or draw on feedback written for other candidates (item and response specific feedback)

  3. RSS Feed of course progress

    I would like to be able to tap into an RSS feed for a number of key areas so that I can update my blog and social media as to the progress of the course. If a candidate completes the course and is awarded, then I would like to be able to automatically push that message out to the blog and then social media channels.

  5. Clearer information about number of submitted/graded assignments on main "Tasks/Assignments" page

    I am not quite happy with the overall listing of student tasks. Currently, tasks appear grouped in two columns by "Ungraded" and "Graded", apparently by somewhat arbitrary criteria, since it happens often that a task is "partially graded", i.e. as an instructor I have graded some of the submissions, but some of them not yet.

    Instead, I would prefer to see under each task heading some information like this:
    "Submitted: 79
    Graded: 52
    Ungraded: 27"
    ... or even detailing how many students submitted their work on time, and how many after the deadline.

    Instead of grouping by "Ungraded" and "Graded",…

    I agree that would be a fantasic feature. At the moment we support import of courses in Moodle and IMS Open Cartridge formats. However, for the feature to work Udemy should support export of course. This, unfortunately, is unavailable on Udemy at the moment.

  9. Allow students to have an access code instead of just an email invitation.

    Similar sites give students an access code where they can sign up for a course as they set up a profile. The current system of sending students an email with a link is time consuming while trying to integrate Eliademy with a traditional classroom. This would allow students immediate access to the online classroom instead of waiting for an email to come through.

  12. Allow assigning relative weights to tasks for grading

    It would be good if instructors could specify the relative weight of each task for the calculation of the final grade; so for example an important task's grade could contribute 40% towards the final grade, while a less important task could contribute only 10%.

  13. Advanced quizzes: random selection of many quenstions

    It would be nice if we would be able to provide a lot of questions (say for instance 100 questions) and every time the students take the quiz, they get a new randomly generated set of these questions (for instance 10 questions). That way students could take quizes multiple times and get a different quiz every time.

  14. Automated Hide/Unhide of contents based on date or student progress

    Instead of manually hiding and unhiding course contents and tasks, it would be great if this could be automated by specifying dates when contents should be shown resp. hidden, or specifying certain requirements (completion of previous tasks, etc.) which a student must fulfill in order to see specific contents.

    (I just realize that the latter would mean to individualize the hidden/visible status of items for each student ... sorry if that's a lot of work ...)

  15. Allow the use of an external grading tool

    For example programming courses have a need to automatically grade tasks. It should be possible to automatically grade them with some external tool.

  16. Divide students to study groups

    It should be possible to divide students attending the course to groups that work together. They would have a common discussion forum within the group to discuss on.

  17. Create task due dates that are individual to the student

    It would be nice to be able to limit the time they have to complete their tasks - and even if students are starting courses at different times - each student would have same amount of time for completing the task.

  18. Hidden Tasks When Reusing Courses

    It would be really helpful if, when reusing a course, the tasks could be hidden by default so I don't have to go in and manually hide all of the upcoming tasks.

  20. Add a task like the Moodle "Lesson" task

    In the lesson task, the student reads, listens to or watches some content then answers questions before being allowed to proceed. How the student andwers will determine whether the student proceeds, is sent back to review the same content or is directed to other content altogether.
