No. The ability to view a student’s full name is only available at the K-12 level. This is frustrating because it can be difficult to tell who has added a comment if students don’t set up an identity that matches their name in Canvas and add a photo that shows their face. For this reason, we recommend that you require that students set up a VoiceThread identity at the start of the semester that matches their Canvas information.
If you want to provide students with instructions for creating a VoiceThread identity, you can share with them this VoiceThread presentation that I’ve created: Creating an Identity in VoiceThread
