Recording your name

  1. Go to the Name Coach Roster module in your course, located in the Content area. Note: This is only available if your instructor has added it.
  2. Under your name, click on Record. If you have recorded your name before, it will say Update.
  3. You’ll have three options for submitting your recording. Choose the one you are most comfortable with:
  • Uploading a file – browse to your computer for an audio file you have pre-recorded
  • Using your cell phone – you’ll receive an automated call from Name Coach during you can record your name
  • Using the built-in web recorder – speak into your computer’s microphone to record your name


Once you have completed this step in the process, be sure to Save or Submit when you are ready. You will be able to listen to your recording at any time, and click Update if you’d like to change it.
