Recording your name

Recording how to pronounce your name will make it easier for professors and students to learn how to say your name.  To start, log into Moodle.

  1. Click on your name (top right) and select Profile
  2. Under User details, select Edit profile
  3. In the Description section, select the microphone icon and record your name
  4. Select Attach recording
  5. Go to the bottom of the page and select Update profile

To update the pronunciation, edit the Description section.  Delete the original recording and make a new recording.

Some versions of the Safari web browser may not properly display the audio recording button.  If you don't see the microphone icon, try again using the Chrome, Firefox, or Opera browser.

Listening to others' name pronunciations

Recordings are only available for people that have submitted a pronunciation.  Not all people have recorded their name in Moodle.  

To hear how to pronounce other peoples' names in Moodle:

  1. In your Moodle course, select Participants from the left-hand navigation column
  2. Click on a name
  3. Play the audio located under their name and photo
