It’s easy to change the name using the course’s Settings page.

Before You Begin

  • Determine the existing name of the course.

Example: My Course

  • Decide upon a new name for the course.


  • On the landing page of your campus, click the change settings link next to the name of the course you want to rename.
Change Settings

Note: If you do not see this link, you may have changed the default layout. You can access the Settings page by clicking the Settings link in the Administration block of the course itself. If you can’t find this block, you can add it temporarily to any course page by selecting it from the Add Block dropdown.

  • In the Full Name box, enter the new name you decided upon. Repeat this in the Short Name box or enter a shorter version of the course name.

Note: the Short Name is applied to the breadcrumbs

  • Scroll down to the bottom of the screen and click the Save Changes button. The name will change both on the campus landing page and in the breadcrumbs at the top of the page.
