Changing a Course Name or Description

The instructor may change the default course name and description at any time. For consistency, choose a course name and create a description for your course prior to the start of the semester. Make your best effort not to change this information during semester, as this could cause confusion for students and others accessing the course. The name change takes place globally within Blackboard, appearing to instructors and students alike.
