Spiral Feature Requests and Ideas
Hi everyone. As you know, we make Spiral for teachers based on their requests. If you have a feature request, please post it here. If it gets enough upvotes we will build it into the system!

Love the annotation/drawing capability in Quickfire--- one question though -- can the responding student change the pen color? We mark up x-rays and black is often way not the right color! I've not used the presentation (team up) feature yet - which may have easier color switches -- because the formative piece I'm doing I'm looking for an individual response ---- Pat N

I would love to be able to insert a doc or slide into the video at a certain point. For instance, I used Ed Sheeran's "Castle on the Hill" to introduce the idea of comfort zone. Partway through the video, I ask students to determine what they think are characteristics of a comfort zone, then I want to show them the characteristics I have defined in a comfort zone, then I want them to reconsider some of the song with these new characteristics to define comfort zone. It would be helpful if I could insert my pdf, slide, doc, jpg, etc. in that portion of the video to use in my lesson.

It would be really helpful to share clips that I have made with other teachers for them to use in their class. So much of what we do in education these days is based on collaborative teams that are supposed to be horizontally aligned and lockstep.

Would it be possible to add questions that are different..... Like in the form of a poll, multiple choice, true false, agree/disagree? Thanks for what you guys do! You all are awesome!
Spiral offers so much in one place, it's awesome. One feature I would like to see is improved editing on clips - so the video could be shortened ( start later, end earlier) to focus on one segment. It would be great to have it as a homework assignment too!

It would be great to have differentiated levels for quickfire. For example, clicking on students names to give them a hint or an extension? Or generating a bundle of questions for students to work through at a time in a choose your own level type of way.

It would be helpful to have ability to delete a student's name if they sign up with something inappropriate. #MiddleSchoolProblems

Ability to open a private wi-fi connection for students who need to connect to the school's WI-FI for access to Spiral. Once the class is over the connection stops, and can be reopened at next class, with a new password to log on. Thank you!

I use team up to work on vocabulary in my ESL classes. Each team presents the result of their research in class. It would be SO helpful if it were possible to save the printable/downloadable version of those presentations so that the students could share them and study the words of other teams later.

When doing a Quickfire question, I would like to be able to send a response back with a comment so that the student(s) know what I would like them to fix.

I would love for the Discuss tool to allow for a variety of answer types including the White Board draw feature that Quickfire has as well as multiple choice, fill in the blank, short answer, etc. Add to that asynchronous capability so students can advance at their own speed and even outside of class, and Spiral would be really cooking! Excited to see how this tool will grow!

The feature that would help me the most would be integration with Canvas so that scoring could be done in Speedgrader and students would be able to see their answers.

Improve your answer - should be more detail. The teacher should be able to type what needs to be improve.

1) Have students be able to use canvas feature (like in Quickfire) in Discuss.
2) Allow multiple questions in Quickfire, students can progress to next question after answering previous.

Need to be able to increase the font size so it is large enough to read for the size of the room being used.
