Instructor Considerations before Use

General Considerations

  • Available to all courses in Canvas and to all employees through the NameCoach website. 
  • One recording will be used for all courses and the email signature. 

Information to share with students

  • You only need to record your name once and it will be accessible in all of your Canvas courses.
