  5. Student's name on dashboard


Student's name on dashboard

Hello, Is there a way to modify a student's name once that student is added to the teacher's dashboard? All of my students have made Duolingo accounts using their own usernames, and when they are added to the teacher dashboard, there is no way of me knowing who they are. Thanks!

not as of yet, will probably (hopefully) be added soon though.


The more personal information people put on their profile, the more vulnerable they're going to be on the internet. So, I don't suggest having them put last names. If they are active in the community, it's likely others will end up learning their first names along the way.

PS Some people change their usernames all the time on Duolingo. It changes their URL when they do. I imagine that if a student changes their username, it will change on your chart as well. But, I haven't read of anyone doing this yet. Might be worth it to give it a try. If you do, let me know if it worked?


No, the idea is to give a teacher the possibility to add custom names in the teacher view. I have six students now, already hard to tell them apart. Who is "Lion" 12345@xx.yy.zz, who "123abg"?…


Yep, we'll add that soon!


That's brilliant!!!
