    Let instructors in Blackboard Learn see the faces of their students to identify them during proctored exams, to learn their names, to use as attendance sheets.

    "Computer Software Release: Open Photo Roster" by Szymon Machajewski





    “Remember that a person's name is, to that person, the sweetest and most important sound in any language. The average person is more interested in their own name than in all the other names in the world put together. People love their names so much that they will often donate large amounts of money just to have a building named after themselves. We can make people feel extremely valued and important by remembering their name.”

    Dale Carnegie, “How to Win Friends and Influence People”




    Learning student names in a classroom course is important to creating an inclusive learning environment.  Some Learning Management Systems, like Blackboard Learn, provide tools for student images, but such tools are insufficient.  This software project creates a consistent and reliable way of identifying students for the needs of proctored exams as well as for learning student names.
