Renaming a course

FELIX 10-040

What you need to know

If you want to change an existing course title, you have to change it in two places - once in the course editor and once on the course info page.

What you have to do

  1. In your course, under "Administration", click "Course editor".

    • The course editor opens.

    • Check on the left side of the course structure if the top course element is selected.

  2. To rename the course element, enter the title that is displayed in the course in the "Title" field. If necessary, abbreviate the title in the "Title in course menu" field.
    "Save" your entries.

    • The "Title in course menu" is displayed on the left side of the structure. Since the structure is fixed to a certain width, a maximum of 25 characters is recommended.

    • Under "Insert additional information" below you can enter e.g. learning objectives and instructions for learners.

    • Do not use umlauts and avoid all other special characters except (), /\, -, _. Use the following routine for clarity:
      Title_ if applicable, degree program _ (your last name), example: Marketing_WNB_(Huebner).

  3. Click the red cross (top right) to close the course editor. Select the "Publish automatically" option to publish the change. 

    • In the course view that opens, the changed title is displayed in the course structure (left) and in the course view (center).
      In the course info page and in the catalog, the title change has not been changed.

  4. Under "Administration", select the "Settings" option.

    • The administration area of the course opens. The "Info" tab is selected.

  5. Change the title of the learning resource again here and, if necessary, the description.

    • In the "Execution" tab, activate the "Semester" option and select the desired semester to display the time period of the course already in the catalog.

  6. "Save" the input and close the window with the cross (top right).

  7. If your course is not yet open to students, you can follow the instructions on Helpcard 10-030.
