How do I rename a course?

Rename a course or cohort to change the titles that appear at the top of the Path and in your Library.

Each course can have one or more Cohorts. For example, if Creative Writing 101 is your course name, the three Cohorts might be named Spring Semester, Fall Semester, and Summer Session.

Edit the course name

Open the "Course Settings" on any existing course. You'll find these under a gear icon on the course cover in the Library.

If you're viewing the Cohort Path, you can open the additional actions menu and select "Configure Path" to open the Course Settings. If viewing the Source Path, you'll see a gear icon that goes directly to the Course Settings instead.

With the Course Settings open, you will see the “Course Name” field at the top. Edit or enter your new course name here. Save your changes and exit Course Settings.

💡Tip: Your Course slug (URL) will now update automatically to match the new Course name. You may not see the change until after refreshing the browser or navigating back to the Course. Old URLs will redirect automatically.

Edit the name of a particular Cohort taking the course

  1. Open your Cohort and select the three dots (...) at the top of the course Path directly under the name of the course. This will open a menu with additional options.

  2. Select "Configure Cohort" from the menu.

You will see the “Cohort Name” field at the top. Edit the cohort name here. Save your changes and exit.

💡Tip: Your first cohort will automatically have the same name as the course, but if you offer multiple Cohorts, you will want to name each Cohort uniquely so you, your staff, and learners know when you are in the correct Cohort.
