On the first day of class, I bring my camera, which has a video function, and record the students saying their names as they walk out of the classroom. It takes less than 5 minutes. Then, throughout the next several days, I watch the video over and over. By the second class I know 2/3 of their names, and by the third class I'm usually up to 100%, and it doesn't matter where they sit. This also helps with tough pronunciation.

I agree that it's a small amount of work on our part for a huge reward.
