NameCoach for Instructors

NameCoach is a web service that allows members of the Ohio State community to voice record the pronunciation of their names, and clarify the pronouns people should use to refer to them. NameCoach is available in all CarmenCanvas courses.

Enable NameCoach

In order for students to access NameCoach, you must enable it in each of your Carmen courses.

Follow the directions to enable navigation links for directions on enabling links in your course. The widget is titled NameCoach. 

Once you enable NameCoach for your course you can learn more about recording names in NameCoach.
