We have recently received requests for accessing up to 4 years’ worth of student Sakai-stored work and downloading it for their personal archive. We frequently receive this request, since students cannot access their work after they graduate but often need it for several different purposes such as job interviews and resumes.
The question from our student group survey was stated:
If Sakai had a button that said “Download All My Work from the Past 4 years from all my Sakai Course Sites”, would you use it?
98% of our students who took the survey said they would use such a button.
We certainly see this feature’s enormous potential/appeal to our students and our community users.
ability for students to download all of their work for their personal archive.
While Sakai has many tools and student’s work may be uploaded into many of these different tools, such as dropbox and assignments, the goal would be to create a “One button” feature to download all students’ work at once. We certainly see one possible side effect of overwhelming students with a long list of their works. So it would be nice if we could provide students with a full listing of their work, so that students can select from options of either downloading their desired files or downloading all of them.
Thank you for considering this feature request.
