To further the goal of building a more welcoming and inclusive community, our campus recently introduced NameCoach. Available in Canvas courses, NameCoach allows classmates and instructors to record and share their preferred name pronunciation.
To get started, look for the NameCoach area in your course navigation menu in Canvas to record your name and locate where you can find students’ recordings. Detailed help instructions can be found on OIT’s website.
Even if you choose not to record your name, you can explore the NameCoach area in your course navigation menu to listen to your students’ recordings to learn how to pronounce their names at the start of the semester.
