University of Murcia considers the development of a tool that allows students to keep track of the time spent on the tasks that teachers create in Sakai. Students must be able to perform this action via web or mobile devices through specific applications. In addition, the management of tasks, subjects and so, must be integrated with Sakai, and an administration panel must be allowed so that instructors can manage the data provided, issue reports, etc.
One of the main issues that university degree programs are facing nowadays is adjusting the workload that students must devote to a subject according to the different formative activities of which it is composed.
Within the Assignments tool we suggest the addition of a new tab "Work Log" in which students can add the time they are spending on a task before even creating a draft of it, being independent of the submissions or drafts that they may make.
- The student view must show the time spent on a specific task and what you have spent it on.
- The instructor's view should show the time each student has spent separately and a statistic of the general time of all of the students, being also able to detect those students that are being left behind.
