Make 'Display Name' visible inside course 'People' area and 'Attendance' area



It's hard for the lecturers to identify the students who have set their 'Display Name' to something very different from their real name.

Currently the teacher has to click on each student in the 'People' area inside the course one by one to see their Display name at the right panel. This is very time consuming.

A column should be added inside the Course > People area for the 'Display Name' instead so the teacher would be able to see the real name and the 'Display Name' for all the students in a single page.

The 'Attendance' area inside the course doesn't show the 'Display Name' either. This makes the lecturer to open multiple tabs and jump from People page to attendance page which is annoying.


All these hassles can be eliminated by just adding the 'Display Name' to the 'People' area and the Attendance area inside courses.
