It's easy to get students to record their name pronunciation in Canvas utilizing NameCoach's Account Level Recording Tool along with Canvas' Global Announcement feature.
Setting Up and Accessing the Account Level Recording Tool
First, install the Account Level Recording Tool by following the directions here - Integrating NameCoach with the Canvas LMS.
Once this is done, users in your Canvas instance can acess the tool by navigating to 'Account' >> 'Profile' and then whatever you've chosen to name the tool (for our examples we've named it 'Account Level Recorder').
Configuring and Publishing the Global Announcement
To write your Global Announcement, start by navigating to 'Admin' >> 'Settings' >> 'Announcements'.
1. First, click '+New Announcement' and enter in whatever text you'd like to have in the announcement. Be sure to include a line of text that will act as the link to the recording tool.
2. Before you publish the announcement, you need to incorporate the link to the Account Level Recording Tool. To do this, navigate back to the tool in a separate tab. Once you're there, copy the tool's URL.
3. Next, navigate back to the tab holding the draft of the global announcement. Highlight the line you'd like to hold the link, click on 'Link to Url', paste in the URL for the Account Level Recorder, and click 'Insert Link'.
4. Now simply press 'Publish announcement' and your global announcement will appear for your students!
