Grading all section members once
To be able to grade all section members without the need of selecting them one by one. The process can be the following:
Assignment section filter in grade report
New assignment type: audio recording
Our instructors demand a new type of assignment, audio recording, in the same way Samigo (Test&Quizzes) provides.
Assignments Zip Export doesn't preserve UTF8 names
The download all functionality doesn't preserve the display of names with utf8 characters.
Multiple choice, multiple answer with penalty
Currently, each correct answer adds points and each wrong answer discount points. Thus, if you create a new question with three possible answers but only two of them being correct, if the students marks the three he/she will get 2/3 of the total points when, probably, he/she should be assigned zero points. Then our instructors have requested us to choose between:
Sending the same feedback comment to a set of users
In the same way that you can select user to select users and allow resubmission to a reduced set of users, our instructors have requested to be able to send the same feedback comment to a set of users, independently if they are in same section or not.
Searching using wildcards
Sakai offers several tools where user can enter a text and ask for a search of users, sites, sections and so on. It would be useful to be able to use wildcards in this searches. For example, if you enter "Discussion % SMPL101", you'll get:
Promote UFP sakai-feeds
promote the feature richer UFP-contributed newsfeeds and deprecate the old news tool
soft-delete files/resources from content hosting (and purging)
Running in 2.5 and 2.6 at Oxford and Columbia (perhaps other places)
soft-delete sites with with purging (30 days by default)
Upload and unroll ZIP files
Big request from prospective Sakai institutions. Have addressed performance concerns in patches. Off by default.
