Student or Learner
I am writing a summary of some interviews I conducted.
Could you tell me which of these two sentences is correct?
For example, it has been recommended not to "over examine" and to keep courses short
For example, it was recommended not to "over examine" and to keep courses short

..."over-examine" would have been quite clear if it had had the hyphen. Some words that use the prefix "over-" have by now lost it and become one word (like "overdo" or "overeat") but here it needs a hyphen. And the choice of tense depends on the context; either could be appropriate.
could you look at the whole paragraph and tell me which of the two versions is the right one?
"Some interviewees said ease of use to be extremely important. Others regarded this factor importance as something granted. They added that e-learning should be "learner-centered" rather then "learning-centered". For example, it has been recommended not to "over examine" and to keep courses short."
