I have no idea if this is possible, but I thought that I would put it out there. I am hoping that there is some way to build in an auto-save function similar to what happens for students in Google docs and Google slides. I had a number of parents complain to me about lost activity work in Seesaw for their children during our remote learning. They shared that the students completed the entire activity and then when they went to click on the green check mark at the end, it failed to load and they lost all of their work. Interestingly, in my Seesaw Connect group I got to be a student myself for the first time and this same thing happened to me on two out of the three activities that we did. How frustrating! I really would love to make Seesaw my main LMS (I use both Seesaw and the Google Classroom), but I know that both students and parents were frustrated with these losses. I even had a few families say that they preferred the tasks that I built in the Google digital spaces because of the auto-save feature. What I ended up doing when I re-did both of my own assignments in Seesaw was clicking on the check mark after I completed each slide and then going back in to edit the item in the hopes of not suffering another total loss, but this is not a feasible work around for students. Thank you for your consideration.
