      Description

      Repro Steps

      1. Enter a course with atleast 3 users.
      2.  Add the "Administration" block (if not already present).
      3. In the "Administration" block, go to "Reports" -> "Logs".
      4. On the "Logs" screen, open the "Participants" dropdown (its default value is "All participants").

       

      Expected Results
      The sort order of the participants list (in the dropdown) should be consistent with the first unit in the participant name, which is its first name.

       

      Actual Results
      The sort order of the participants list (in the dropdown) is *in*consistent with the first unit in the participant name, which is its first name. The list of participants is sorted by the last name, which is the second unit of the participant name.

      Problem
      The format of the participant name in the participants dropdown is:
      FIRSTNAME LASTNAME

      However, the list is sorted by the last name. The result is that something seems odd with the list, until the user figures out what is happening. This is not ideal.

      It's better to to either:
      1) Change the format of the name in the participants dropdown, so it would be:
      LASTNAME, FIRSTNAME
      Which is a very popular format.
      2) Sort the participants list by the first name.
