Enable NameCoach in your Brightspace course

Brightspace houses a tool called NameCoach which allows students to record their name’s pronunciation to ensure other people in their classes are pronouncing it correctly. Adding NameCoach to a Brightspace course enables users to record their names for playback by the rest of the course. In this guide, we’ll go over how this tool can be added to your Brightspace course.
