I have some questions regarding privacy, when taking online classes. In discussion posts, the full legal name of the student is displayed. So, any student enrolled in that class can see other student's full name. 
In this age of ID theft, and cybercrime/online bullying/etc, there is much potential for misuse of any online information.
An online student may not want their full legal name publicly displayed on Canvas. 
Is there an option on Canvas, to create and use a screen name? or just initials? 
Any other alternative?
