General suggestions for improvements to Duolingo I

I coordinate foreign languages at the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at the U of Delaware and offer German courses in which students at all levels can acquire German. To this end I have been exploring Duolingo for several Weeks, keeping notes on my suggestions for improvement both for the program in general and for various specific aspects of the German course. To whom should I send an detailed summary of my comments?

I do think Duolingo can be valuable as either a voluntary or required adjunct to a foreign language course using either the tradtitional methodology or Stephen Kraschen's acquisition approach via Comprehensible Input. My suggestions are in line with that.

If you are an educator and you have suggestions for Duolingo for Schools, you can post in this forum (for comments from other educators) where we always look for more ideas and suggestions. You can also email school-related suggestions to teachers@duolingo.com :]
