WOW, I have just come across this, this is going to help with my reporting to my HOD. Keep up the good work.

CanvasCape solves a huge number of administrative problems for the large undergraduate classes that I teach at Harvard. The tools we use the most are the batch grade upload tool, which facilitates uploading a spreadsheet of grades where not all the student identifiers may be available, and the roster export tool. The latter tool creates a formatted spreadsheet with each student's email address, name (with separate columns for first name, last name, and full name), IDs, as well as "role" (e.g., guest, enrolled, prospective enrollee). These are essential pieces of information needed to properly manage a large class, but were not easy to access. We have also used the "roll call" with ID card scanners, which allowed us to take attendance easily and accurately.
