How do I rename a course?

The initial name given to a course is set when the course is requested inside MAX. However, a course's name may be changed from within D2L at any time after the course is created.


Please do not remove the course subject code (e.g. ENGL), course number (e.g. 100), and section (e.g. 01) from the course name. Removing these critical pieces of information may make it more difficult for your students to locate your course now and make it more difficult for you to reuse content from the course in future semesters.

These instructions assume you have already logged in to D2L and entered the course in which you wish to work.

To change the name of a D2L course:

  1. Click on "" in the navigation bar.
  2. Click the "Course Offering Information" link.
  3. In the "Course Offering Name" box, edit the course's name.
  4. Click the "Save" button.
