This wasn't exactly the Focus Group it made itself out to be, but still...
It was about giving staff and students access to info about "What's new, What's wrong and What's due"
Some points that came up:
would staff want to see info at a global level or by course?
would they want info about work that had been handed in?
would they want notifications by email?
does everything a member of staff wants to know about class as what's due, rather than what's new?
should/could information about students faling behind be sent to staff with responsibility for retention?
would students want to see info at a global level or course level?
should students be able to see all their grades in one place?
