Add people, recognize students with Canvas enhancements

A redesigned “Add People” feature in Canvas, the UW’s learning management system, lets you quickly add anyone to a course yourself. Until now, adding a new person required an instructor to ask the UW-IT help desk to create an account, wait for that to happen, then return to the Canvas course to add the person. Also, Canvas People now includes a Student Photo List, making it easy for instructors and students to connect names and faces.
