    Right now, we use the pictures taken for ID cards for pictures in our institutional online directory and profile pictures for our current LMS.  We do a batch upload of all new incoming students to get the pictures loaded into the LMS. We are piloting Canvas and there has been concern expressed about allowing students to upload their own pictures.  (I understand that you can flag pictures, the admin can remove or lock any pictures, etc. however, this isn't the best option for our institution.  So if there was a way to be able to batch upload user pictures into Canvas, that would be very helpful.
