What is NameCoach?

NameCoach is an online tool which allows users to record the pronunciation of their names. By providing a simple and effective way to ensure accurate name pronunciations, it promotes inclusion, belonging, and rapport in the classroom.

Canvas users can access NameCoach in their fall 2022 courses and user accounts.
