  1. 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%.

    • 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.

      • Grade book should allow manual entry

        In addition to online test and tasks sometime courses have "offline" assignments. I would be good to incorporate such data right to Eliademy grade book.

        • 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.

          • Plagiarism Checker

            How about adding a plagiarism checker for the students and/or the teachers to use to determine whether the student has plagiarized any previous work. It could be added into the grading section or as a button on the task menu. This would assist the student in ensuring all work is correctly cited prior to submission.

            • Support for Exporting course material

              It takes a lot of effort to build a course. I'd like to make sure I can bring it out in html/xml/some other form as well.

              Users would benefit from export as pdf or print - version as well.

              • Learners able to re-enter their submissions and make changes to a ongoing log/journal

                If you are delivering a course that requires learners to add to a journal entry as a task, this could be constantly updated by the learner and feedback could be given as ongoing assessment

                  • Instructor should be able to control automatic content update notifications

                    Teacher should be able to disable automatic content changes notification that are sent to students. When an instructor is doing a lot of juggling around with the course, changing things back and forth, trying different ways to present things, it could easily generate a lot of useless update information and cause students to be annoyed by the emails.

                        We are researching few technologies at the moment and EtherPad looks the best from “embeddable” open source online collaborative editors.

                        Until it is ready please remember that you can simply add a link to your instance of Titanpad anywhere in Eliademy.

                      • menu bar

                        In the menu bar perhaps allowing the teacher to add or remove tabs that are pertinent to each course. For example, I won't be using a webinar in one course and would like to omit it. Or a "tab" that has lessons on it. instead of tasks. Essentially, allowing for flexibility in managing the tabs and thei respective names.

                        • Being able to view the chat history of live webinars that have ended.

                          When making a live webinar it would be useful to have it recorded or saved. That way when the session has ended students can access it afterwards. This would also help for students who have missed the live webinar.

                                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)

                                • Student defined/randomized sequence of topics

                                  In the course I'm developing i touch on 50 different (very short/granular) topics that don't need a sequence. I would like the sequence to be either:

                                  a) Student-defined sequence: the student can see the 50 topics and pick the sequence he wants to carry out. The student should be able to see clearly which topics he needs to take and which one he's already studied.

                                  b) Randomized: each topic is a surprise every time! (like the shuffle function in an MP3 player), with no repetition of a topic the student has already worked on. When the student has completed a…

                                          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.

                                          When student receive the same training for several consecutive days, it would save some time and effort if one could simply copy and paste daily schedules. Or create an recurrent even that repeats on each day.
