Add private mentor notes. #4083
The first thing I do when I come across a solution I've not mentored before is solve it myself. Because of the way tracks are set up now, I sometimes just knock together a solution in my text editor. For example, I just mentored Ruby#pangram, and so I wrote this:
In doing this I had some thoughts and refactorings, as well as the eventual code. I'd like to be able to record those thoughts (and for a simple exercise like this, the code) by an exercise, then consider them next time I mentor the same exercise. This would allow me to build a volume of notes for an exercise, which makes it quicker for me to work with.
I therefore think that as part of the new mentor-tools modal we're making, we should allow a text box that a mentor can just write their own personal notes in, that are linked to the track/exercise in question.
FYI, we're already adding other things to the mentor tools modal such as a link to your published solution, a link to other mentors' solutions, etc.
Thoughts from mentors welcome.
I think it would be awesome, but... currently I am recording those kind of thoughts and notes elsewhere, and I have a lot of extra functionality (search FTW) to make that super useful.
