At the moment discussions are based by chronological order, but we will try adding more sorting options.
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.
We are planning few major improvements for the Tasks functionality during this winter. This request will be a part of it as well. Thanks for letting us know.
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:
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.
Thanks a lot for this idea. We have just released this feature. More at https://blog.eliademy.com/2016/09/29/quizzes-in-a-live-learning-platform/
We are planning a big update for course content management with ability to reorder attachment, tasks and topics.
More types of quizzes – is something we really want release soon. We are working on it right now, and are planning to release it in late spring.
