D2L (Brightspace) - Editing Course Titles

Instructors can change how the titles of their courses display in D2L.

The default title of UW Colleges courses in Desire2Learn (Brightspace) is simply the title from the course catalog (ex: Intro College Algebra). Many instructors want the D2L title field to contain enough information to tell a course apart from other sections or semesters of the same course. This would include the course number, section, number, and semester (ex: MAT 105 Intro College Algebra K001 FA15). Instructors can edit the D2L title field of their courses to add this information, or other information as desired.

Here's a video on how to do this:
