      Description

      This is from an instructor at Tennessee Wesleyan University, a LAMP Consortium member:

       

      Stacey Cunningham says, "I'm able to create groups for the students to join and that works okay when they sign up slowly. However, as we were talking about, it becomes challenging when I want to have a practical exam sign up and all 30 students try to sign up in pairs for one of multiple available spots at the same time. I hope to keep sign ups as fair as possible so that each student has an equal chance for the timeframe they'd like, but Sakai can't seem to handle all of this at once. The last time I tried to have all students sign up for a group at the same time, it even deleted some of the groups in the process so that not all students could claim a spot - very bizarre. I ended up going back to the old fashioned way of drawing names and inputting everyone into a Word doc table instead. That's doable, but more time consuming. If Sakai has any insights as to how to correct this glitch, it would be much appreciated. “
