Do you have any suggestions on how we can improve the New Dashboard?

• Elizabeth Beatty- “Huge improvement from old, keep up the good work”

• Tyler Donohue- “Make it more comprehensive and inform students of the changes. At my high school, we had a similar set up, and the "What's Due" section was never up to date. As of now, I do not trust that the "What's Due" Section contains everything I need to know of. (I can point out right now it has no mention of my Math 115 class.) Recent grades would probably be better off in a list form similar to What's Due. This would leave more room for IMPORTANT announcements which should be put in the center. Such as when parking lots will close, etc. Move Athletics and Watch Convocation under classes to make more room. They don't need all that space. I think MyLU should have more of a similar appearance, because that is very cluttered and hard to navigate. It would be cool if you could roll that and Blackboard and maybe ASIST all into one! Overall though, I think the new layout has a lot of potential, and I like how class pages have remained the same!”

• David Engelmann- “Overall, I appreciate your efforts in improving the usefulness of Liberty's dashboard. Great work! My only recommendation is to eliminate or further improve the "What's Due" column. For some reason, it doesn't seem to be synced correctly (with what's actually due), though this could also be an issue with data entered by the prof.”

• Ryan Jackson- “This new version is amazing! Excellent job! Less windows to click through and wait for loading saves a lot of time!! Thank you!”

• Kaitlin Myers- “Organized sections that stand out more so we don't have to go looking for the things we really need. Maybe use more color between sections, bolder fonts for section headings, etc.”

• Stephanie Schuler- “No recommendations. I think students will figure out (one way or another) how to navigate the page but I do think this improvement may be helpful for many students wanting to see the "bigger picture" right there on one page.”

• Sophia Wade- “Adding professor's office hours would be nice!”

• Zachary Hawout- “I really like the new dashboard much better than the old one. I say that for the following reasons: 1. You don't have to sift through the list of your old classes to get to your current ones anymore. 2. You are told what has recently been graded and what is due soon. I really don't have any suggestions on how to improve it. Just please don't take those features away!”
