  1. Grouping course content into topics or chapters

    In our course of 12 weeks we have several phases that our course goes through. It would be nice if the topics of those phases could be grouped in some kind of chapter/section thingy.

    It would be handy if those sections/chapters would be collapsible.

    At this moment of time content in Eliademy is “linear”. Most of the teachers simply add numerals to topic names to add depth. For example:

    Overview
    1.1 – Topic A
    1.2 – Topic B
    2.1 – Topic C

    Despite all this, we have few ideas how to add additional layering that would be easy to create, manage and understand. Stay tuned and vote.

  2. Peer review for assignments

    New type of assignments - peer review. Students have to review and grade works of other participants based on the common criteria provided by a teacher.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Automatic Issuing of Certificates

    It would be nice if there was a setting to allow the certificates to be automatically issues once the student has completed all of the required tasks.

  6. Send messages to course participants directly from Eliademy

    I would like to send any messages to course participants. Messages should stay archived (Sent folder) so teacher can come back to them and see the communication with the student or whole group.

    Right now, as an instructor you can send a mass mail to all students at once via Participants tab.

    To contact individual students, please click on “mail” icon next to person’s profile.

    We will eventually add an internal “messaging” system, but right now our priority is better content management and quizzes.

  7. Change order of attachment on course page

    Is it possible to get a feature to drag boxes up and down - changing their order.
    I did a mistake in the content order and fixing it was a bit complicated.

  8. Student should get an automatic email if some of the tasks are still due

    An automatic email if there is a quiz/task that is not yet completed with the following text "We noticed you signed up for course X however you haven’t made any progress yet. Is there something we can help you with? Contact course instructor."

    Another Email to user who has taken 1 or more quiz, however haven’t finished all the quizzes after 3 days and again after 7 days if no action - Message “Hi, we can see you’ve made some great progress in course x, however you haven’t managed to complete the course yet. You’ve very close to the finish!…

  9. Mark assignment as completed manually

    If students their work as groups it would to receive final submission from one user, and mark other submission as completed. So students don't get "you are late" notifications.

  11. Surveys and feedback polls for course participants

    This would be an additional kind of student task. A survey could have the same format as a quiz, but would not generate a grade. Instead, statistics about the students' answers would be delivered to the instructor via the Analytics tool. This would be useful for gathering certain information about students' demographics, needs and expectations, etc.

  12. Student should be able to "mark as completed" course topics

    Student should be able to "mark as completed" certain topics of the course. Each topic represent an event % of a total 100% together with tasks and quizzes.

    Thus if you went through entire OER course you will get 100%.

  13. Advanced quizzes: tips from the instructor

    During a quiz or essay that the student is making, there should be pop-up notifications with valuable tips or recommendations from the instructor that motivates the student to put 100% effort on the course.

    these tips or recommendations will be previously written by the instructor and will appear once the student clicks on the "tips" icon.

  14. Domain masking for Eliademy for business

    Organization should be able to access Eliademy using their own domain. For example: cbtec.eliademy.com or eliademy.cbtec.fi.

  15. Schedule tasks to be available on a certain date

    Right now it is possible only to hide/unhide tasks. But it would be great to schedule task to appear on the course at a certain date/time.

  18. 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.
