What is NameCoach?

Utilize NameCoach to properly pronounce everyones’ names and use their pronouns.

NameCoach is a tool designed to support inclusive practices. The NameCoach Canvas integration allows everyone in a Canvas course or Canvas DEN to record and share the pronunciation of their names. Instructors or DEN leaders will first need to enable the tool in all of the Canvas courses or DENs.

NameCoach is available in Canvas under the course navigation menu.
