Renaming a Course in Brightspace

The initial name given to a course is set when the course is created through Banner or during the merge process. 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. ENG), course number (e.g. 100), and section (e.g. 001) from the course name. Care should be taken to make sure the new name of the course can be easily recognized by the enrolled students and by those providing technical support on campus.
