Desire2Learn - NavBar Title Changes

Starting LE 9.0.1, it is possible to change the title of a course in the Navigation Bar. Some people may decide to do this to help differentiate between sections of the same course.

  1. When inside of your course, click on "Edit Course" in the NavBar.

  2. On the page that come up, click on the "Navigation" link.

  3. Since we cannot edit the "default" (MyCourseNavBar) NavBar, we will need to make a copy of it. To do this, click on the "Copy" icon, located on the same line as the "default" (MyCourseNavBar) NavBar.
