      Description

      There seems to be a lot of resistance when Journal is mentioned to be going away. The Assignment type Online Text is the replacement, but many of our teachers don't feel it is up to the task.

      Long and winding discussions about this at:
      http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=43135 and
      http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=89519

      I feel that winning our teachers over would require that the Online Text type has a rating page that

      • shows all of the student answer text
      • has more space for teacher comments
      • and maybe has a default option to show all of the students (not paged by 10 as the default is now)

      The first two are important as teachers are often (for better or worse) commenting with a copypaste method + want to see all of the answers at once to be consistent, notice groupwork when not allowed etc.

      Also, as always, most people like the fact that Journal simply has less options to choose from. Not sure how this can be implemented, a Journal type assignment maybe, with less handles and bars?
