NameCoach: Add name recording to email and social media

Anyone can use NameCoach's free personal Name Badge service to add name recording links to their email signature and social media profiles. (These recordings won't be added to Moodle courses or Bryn Mawr College events that use NameCoach, however.)

Create a NameBadge

  1. Go to NameCoach's NameBadge webpage -- it shows some sample Name Badges if you need ideas.
  2. Click Get Your Name Badge
  3. Enter your email address (you can use your college or personal email.)

Note: Email is the only required field and it is only used to create your account; it isn't be visible on your Name Badge.

  1. Add your First name, Last name and any other information you want to include on your NameBadge. (You can edit everything later, so skip anything you are not sure about.)
  2. Choose how you want to record:
    • Phone. Enter your phone number, then click Submit and Call Me. NameCoach will call that number and prompt you to say your name for the recording (as if you were recording a voicemail message).
    • Web Recorder.  Record within current window: click  Record, wait until the countdown ends, then click Stop.
    • Uploader. Drag a audio file of a recording you've already made to the upload window or click Browse for file to select it from your computer, then click Submit and Finish. (The max file size is only 150KB and .MP3 files work best.)
  3. Click Submit
  4. You will see a My NameBadge page, where you can preview and edit your name badge.
