There's a feature that will make the awesome New Grade Book even more awesomer:
Bring back Student Photos in Grade Book.
I am the Canvas Administrator at my college. I have been diligently trying to "drum up business" among my Web Enhanced instructors to a) utilize Canvas and, b) use the New Grade Book. Much to our dismay, one of the features my face-to-face instructors really liked is gone; that being having the students photos in the grade book like it was in he Old Grade Book. This facilitates the instructor getting to know the students and when grading, they can grade by face.
