Shout-out: share the pronunciation of your name

last updated 4 August 2021.

New to Rutgers Canvas in 2020, the Shout-Out tool is designed to let students share an audio clip and/or a written phonetic spelling of their name with their instructor. This is entirely optional. If you don’t see the Shout-Out tool in your course site, ask the professor to enable it.

  1. Click Shout-Out from the left-hand course menu
  2. Click Record to make a short audio recording of your name
  3. Type the phonetic spelling of your name in the appropriate box
  4. Select the “authorize” check box to share with instructor
  5. Finally, click Save button
