Bb Tip #37: Change the Name of your Course

The names of courses in Blackboard are identical to the names that appear in the Banner system. Instructors have the ability to change the names of the courses to suit their needs. For example, if you teach two sections of French 1010, you can personalize the names to become FREN1010 – 9 MWF and FREN1010 – 11 MWF.

Follow these steps to do it.
To change the name of your Blackboard course, go to the [Control Panel] of the course in question. The Control Panel is located under Course Management. Click on the [Customization] link to expand it and then click on [Properties]. Enter the new name for your course and click [Submit].

Note: Care should be taken to make sure the new name of the course can be easily recognized by the students enrolled.

    Thank you for the inforamtion. This still doesn't help us becasue we don't know if we are working with section 1, 2, 3 or 4. With the Test-out, how can we find out if we are opening basketball or volleyball? We need to get the inforamtiion out to the students ASAP. But, we don't know what to do.

    Thank you.

    Sr. Jean Marie
