About Name Coach

Name Coach is a user-friendly recording and playback tool that enables faculty, staff, and students to voice-record their names so that others can hear how their names are pronounced. Faculty, staff, and students can record their names using a computer, mobile device, or phone.

There are two ways to record your name:

  • Via a Blackboard course in which the tool has been enabled.
  • Through the Name Coach Blackboard course.

  4. Select the Submit button.
  5. Select OK.
  6. Once in the Name Coach course, follow the on-screen instructions to record your name.
