Subject: Feature requests for the next release of ATutorQuote this post in your reply
I'm developing video-based courses for homeschooled students and I am wanting to use ATutor as a kind of "personalized learning system" as opposed to its traditional use for administering teacher-led online courses. As such, some of the things listed below might not be useful for most ATutor users, but I've included them anyway.

Useful for most ATutor users...

* Fill in the blank question type that's automatically corrected by ATutor: Indierect has already developed this for me. I've added some functionality for allowing multiple possible correct answers. The only thing that's lacking at this point is the ability to export/import the questions. I'd be happy to donate the code for this.

* Be able to add more than one email per user account: I've already developed this for the most part as well. I'd be happy to donate the code for this.

* Instructor can edit images via a 3rd party site: This is another feature that I've already developed and would be happy to donate the code for this.

* Make students' My Files accessible by the instructor: This is another feature that I've already developed and would be happy to donate the code for this. Maybe this could be an optional feature when the course is created?

* The timezone offset feature has never worked properly for me. It just doesn't seem intuitive

* Use AM/PM instead of military time for releasing content, tests/surveys, etc.

* Could there be an option to have a likert-style survey be embedded in content pages so students can report their level of understanding. It doesn't seem intuitive to have these as a normal tests/surveys.


Useful for the Personalized Learning System implementation...

* Have a role for parents (similar to a course instructor) where they can determine if/when content is released. Other permissions could be associated with this role as well

* Have an option where tests/surveys and content not have a release/close dates

* Auto-update the gradebook with test/survey results


Thank you.

Yes, I noticed. Someone mentioned it on our forum as well, atutor.ca/view/3/21034/1.html. I have added a patch hoping it would fix it. We might redesign the whole timezone thing...

Re: Fill in the blanks type questions.

I've been looking for something like this myself.

How can I obtain a copy?

Tim,

Why don't you contact me through the LIVE Online Math website (http://liveonlinemath.com).

Thanks.
