1) "Visible" now means something different as it is being used to mean "Assigned". Has this created problems for anyone? I know that I often have been burned by forgetting to make an assignment visible when I create it. It is now part of my practice to set "Visible" at the same time I first edit the available/due/answer dates just so that I don't forget.
Apparently that will need to change because students might potentially login for the first time and have access to a problem set that I'm not ready to release but have marked visible. Is this a correct understanding of the situation?
2) What have you done about students enrolling late? Suppose I have assigned some early assignments that are due during that first week and that I have marked that the answers are available immediately when the set closes.
In the past, when a new student enrolls, they are not automatically assigned the problem set so as an instructor I can add them to the assignment and concurrently shift the assignment dates to account for their special circumstances. But with the LTI auto-enrollment, as an instructor I will not see any notifications. They will be able to access a closed problem set and see solutions before asking for help to open the problem set with customized dates.
Has anyone worked through a solution to this challenge?
3) Are there other surprises that you've encountered?
