  1. Upload Video Files to Ares - allow for streaming

    This has being coming up a lot of us recently where faculty are actively asking for streaming versions of things. The problem we face is that we don’t have a great place to host streaming files at the moment. We are mostly using licensed streaming content from Swank or Kanopy, but we have run into issues with things we need to host locally. We have used Avalon and Panopto as solutions for hosting streamable content, but neither solution are ideal for us at the moment. It would be great if we could upload streaming content to Ares directly, much like…

  2. Set end date for full proxies.

    Many faculty only need a particular full proxy for one academic year, but there's no way in Ares to indicate when their access to the instructor's material should end. This is problematic for copyright and also because Ares addresses all emails to instructors AND their full proxies, which means proxies may get emails about all sorts of irrelevant courses after their work with the faculty member has ended. Having the option to set an end date (or end semester) would be very helpful. The full proxies could either be purged on that date or simply flagged for review.

  3. Allow multiple instructors for a class that have equal rights

    As an instructor I want to have co-instructors for my classes that are treated the same as me versus proxies so that students can find classes under either of us or we can have equal rights.

    Thanks for voting on this idea. Could you provide your preferences on specific options?

    Three questions about web searches for students:

    1. If a course does NOT have currently have an instructor attached to it, should this course appear in the “search by instructor” results in the web?

    2. Should courses with no instructors appear in any web searches? If so, should there be some distinction, where only courses that have course or full proxies, but no instructors appear – whereas courses with NO administrative user (no instructor, no proxies) don’t appear at all?

    3. Should the “search by instructor” web search return matches for course proxies or full proxies? Should it return matches from the text in the Displayed Instructor field or just results based on matches of the first name/last name of users with an instructor role in active/upcoming courses? Our initial plans were to have results returned…

  4. Option to store multiple documents for a single item

    This keeps the site from having to manually combine them into a new single document for storage with the item.

  5. Convert Ares to use UTC time

    This would allow the times to display correctly for each site's time zone regardless of where the SQL server is hosted.
