Learn@UW - Preferred Name (UW-Madison)
If you have a preferred name that you have entered in your MyUW portal, that name will appear in all Learn@UW tools such as Canvas, as well as third party platforms that have been integrated with Canvas such as Piazza, Kaltura, and Blackboard Collaborate. This means your instructor and fellow students will see your preferred first name (as well as your legal last name) in all these platforms.
Your UW-Madison preferred name appears in Learn@UW tools.
