Lazy

Wholy smoke I just got a bajillion whiny emails saying I have not updated this since the 9th… You would not believe I spend all my time in front of a computer. But I’m sorry you’ll just have to take my word for it..

I am lost in a sea of pseudo-olde-english with discovering time doesn’t stand still, hoping you haven’t found other blogs, just generally being an embarrassment to my friends, my day starts from dawn to midnight. I am not complaining though. but who cares.

I promise I will update you with my nefarious activities as soon as I get a chance. Seriously! I mean it!.

Ask

I find it interesting how people take suggested workarounds for solving a problem as me loading on them additional responsibility. They wanted a solution in the form of a code fix from a vendor who no longer provides code fixes to this version (and takes up to a year to provide them in the current version and is hated when implemented).

I provided a manageable solution they could effect today without waiting to see if or when the feature suggestion might be implemented.

So now I am “asking them to do more work”? Nice.

Next post: the workaround.

Granting a Student (Not All) Access

Problem:

The “Restrict access after this date” function affects all students and auditors without individual exceptions. In reality, universities need to grant individual exceptions for Incomplete grades, grade challenges, or other special cases.

Solution:

A Section Instructor could select all the students except the one who needs access and Deny access to them. Then the restrict flag could be lifted, allowing just this one student into the section.

Do students still see the section and get a difficult to understand error message when they are denied access?
