Our IT staff has been tasked with ensuring that a student's preferred name and pronouns are displayed throughout our campus information systems. We would like to extend this information to the Canvas class roster and user profile as a part of this work.
In the Ideas area, we have suggested an approach that provides flexibility around what might be displayed on the user profile and class roster that is tied to the SIS Import process. In this way, Canvas can be tailored to display user information based on what is institutionally relevant, such as pronouns or class year at Williams College and House affiliation at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
If you agree that this idea would be an improvement to the Canvas LMS, we'd appreciate your endorsement!
