Forum: General Questions
So I've been using a Japanese course called Genki, which mirrors the textbook by the same name. I was up through chapter 4, and I logged in to review before my lesson today. Its gone. Not on my recent courses, not on my dashboard, not found in Courses. Like it never existed. My assumption is that its been deleted for some reason. But if so, that really sucks. What that tells me is that I should not invest any time in a course I have not created myself. Is that correct?
Just discussed this, it is something we have intended to solve. There is actually task in the list for a future release to show a warning to the course owner if they try to delete it along the lines of "Warning, X other users have used your course. If you delete it, it will also remove their ability to continue learning. Please consider setting your course to unlisted". That doesn't help your current situation at all, but I just wanted to highlight our awareness of the issue.
I love your program but I can't see spending any time using a course that might disappear without warning or trace. One possible solution would be to allow/encourage people to donate their course to a course library. Much like a physical library, one a course is donated, it becomes property of the community. I'm recreating a genki course from the textbook and would be happy to give it to the community so that others could benefit from it even when I'm done with it if that were an option.
Using MEMORY to learn Spanish. Pienso que mi habilidad actual es promedio....
It's a good idea. Perhaps an additional privacy option like "Library public" which makes it undeletable and guarantees reliability
