It can be difficult to put a name to so many faces! Faces is a simple Moodle block that allows teachers to print out a collection of names and profile photos of those students who attend their classes. 

 

Faces can print a collection of profile photos in grid format for the entire class or by group. It can be useful for use in the classroom or meetings when its useful to 'put a name to a face'

Its a quick and easy block to use and install. All feedback welcome

Development of this block is currently ongoing, so please feel free to make any suggestions.

    Also, the ability to display other fields in addition to the name, idnumber in particular, would be very useful!

    Hi ! Thanks for this.

    I added an issue : https://github.com/Kylegoslin/moodle-block_faces/issues/1

    Why don't you merge this plugin with Roster ? (and with attendance plugin by the way ? ^^)

    Hi
    Please make it Moodle 3.0 ready. After that it will be very helpful.
    What I'm looking for is an option to learn my student names just like with flashcards: Profile-Picture as question - lastname as answer. And not allways beginning with name a-z but shuffeld. Any hint how to do that? In Moodle? With export via Excel to a flashcard-App

    Installing through the Moodle interface, I first get "Unable to detect plugin type...". I selected manually to do "Block" as the type. At that point I get the following error.

    Are there any plans for a M3.2 version?
    Has anybody tested the current version (1.6) against Moodle 3.2?

    This looks like a useful plugin. We've used Roster but our faculty find it cumbersome. We had a homegrown "name quiz" solution that presented student photos in random order minus names for faculty quiz themselves. They loved this method of learning student names for their face-to-face courses, but we've moved away from this in favor of Roster. Any chance a change to your plugin along these lines is in the works? Thanks!
