Having used Masteriyo for some time now, I would like to make a couple of suggestions to help improve the plugin.
1) I do not know which question types are planned for future. I understand from a reply to a post here that, for example, “Essay” (or “Multi-line Text”) is already planned for the pro version. I believe one other very useful question type would be “Content” (as it appears in Lifter LMS) or “Description” (as in appears in Moodle [https://docs.moodle.org/311/en/Description_question_type]) or “Title” (as it appears in Forma LMS [https://docs.formalms.org/reference-guide/learning-objects/test.html]). This is not a question but a page where instructions, descriptions, media files, etc. can be added. It is extremely useful when, for example, a quiz consists of more than one section and when each section features different types of questions. When one section is over, instructions/explanations for the next section can be given in the “Content/Description” and this can be followed by section two, and so on. Also, it can be used – if it supports media files – for listening comprehension (students listen to or watch something and see the questions after that).
2) A “Ticket” system will be helpful for teachers and it will attract more people to Masteriyo. Users hardly know what lies behind a feature in a website. Teachers use Masteriyo (or any other script) but they do not anything about this script; therefore, they cannot make suggestions or send feedback – they need to contact the website administration for this. If the teacher is provided with a “Ticket” link in the course creation process (perhaps a pop-up button or a form partly visible on the right or left margin), they can then contact plugin developers directly whenever they face a problem, have a suggestion, etc. They will also know more about Masteriyo and will help spread the word.
