Why is this important?

Many students struggle with navigating a series of course ID numbers as opposed to the actual course names. For students who rely on text-to-speech or screen readers this is especially difficult because each course ID must be read aloud before they identify the appropriate course link.

To change your course name in Blackboard, do the following:

customization menu in blackboard course control panel

course name and description field

  1. Open your Blackboard course.
  2. In the Course Management Control Panel, select Customization.
  3. Next, select Properties.
  4. Click in the Course Name field at the top of the page and enter your new course name.
  5. Click Submit.
