Make the Confetti for On-Time Submissions an Option

Make the Confetti for On-Time Submissions an Option


The recently released Assignment Submission Celebration has garnered quite a bit of conversation over the last month.  It's very obvious that they people of many different opinions about it.  Everyone's opinion is probably correct for their situation which is why we need this to be a feature option.  Something that individual schools, sub-accounts or even instructors can control for their classes.  I'd even go a step further and say it would be good to have it as a per assignment option.  

Currently it is an account level feature option but that is set to change in July.  I would like to see it permanently remain an option for schools and teachers to decide to use or not. 


Idea is currently in development

I don't know all the reasons for or against the confetti, but it is an addition that does not impact my instruction.  What concerns me is that some of my students have very old computers and/or very slow internet connections.  I don't want them stuck on a page because the confetti is busy loading.  If it is an option, I think the most important group to be able to opt out are the students.  But I may also be showing my ignorance of how it works.

I think this would be a fun addition for students!  I for one like to congratulate people on Facebook just so I can see the confetti and the balloons.  For the recipient, seeing something like this would be a great motivator to continue to be on-time just so that they can see it again -- much like me and Facebook!  Haha
