This is a simple report which displays the user pictures for everyone enrolled in the given course.

You can install it using git. In the top-level folder of your Moodle install, type the command: git clone git:// report/roster

Then visit the admin screen to allow the install to complete.

Once the plugin is installed, you can access the functionality by going to Reports > Roster within the course.

There are two options when viewing the roster. One is to toggle the "Learning mode," which turns the display of names on and off. The other is a "Printable" view, which brings up a version of the report suitable for printing.

    Hi Alex, you can already export a list of users from the gradebook in the course. Does that meet your needs?

    Hi Charles.
    I know but the problem is that the picture will not download and I need just the name and photograph.
    Thank you very much

    I love this add-on! I have recently started using Groups in my courses. Any chance we could see a group dropdown filter? I'm not savvy with php programming or I'd attempt it myself.

    I second Sam's comment of a group filter. Would be a really great addition to a great tool. Thanks Charles.

    Hi Andrew and Sam, thanks for your feedback. The new v1.1.0 release for 2.6+ includes group filtering.

    Hi ! Thanks for this.

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

    Great plugin. Allready 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. An 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?

    Wow I am glad to see this plugin was updated for 3.4 didn't think it would.

    Thanks for this useful plugin. We've used Roster with 3.5 this year, but our faculty find it a bit cumbersome. We had a homegrown "name quiz" solution that presented student photos, one at a time, in random order minus names for faculty to 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!

    Hi Ben, I can see how that would be a useful feature. We don't currently have plans to take Roster in that direction, but it's something we'll keep in mind.

    Thanks for the helpful plug-in. We've had several faculty ask for bigger pictures. Any chance of adding a configuration so the user could choose pic size (e.g. S,M,L) or allow a user to choose the grid size when printing (e.g. 4x6, 8x10, etc.)? We may be able to contribute some development help.

    Hi Matt, that is certainly something we'd be happy to look at implementing. The picture size is an argument passed to the core Moodle function that generates the picture markup; it shouldn't be too difficult to make this configurable from the front end. I took the liberty of opening an issue on GitHub:

    This GitHub issue will be kept up to date with our progress. I happen to actually have some time right now (!!) so I will plan to work on it this week/next week.

    Hi again Matt -- if you look at you can see some screenshots of the configurable size feature. How do those sizes look to you? I'm planning to finalize & publish a version of the plugin including this feature later this week.
