    Before the interface changed (At the beginning of the school year) a student's name would appear at the top of the screen.  This was a nice easy way to identify a student if you were standing behind them in class.  Would it be possible to add their name under their profile picture?

    While this wouldn't be difficult for us to add, at this time we are not going to implement this idea. Our number one concern is student privacy. We would need to add some additional settings and parameters for Canvas admin which complicates the work. We totally understand the need here but protecting the students privacy outweighs the benefit. As always, we so appreciate the dialogue and sample use cases.
