Can I change the name of my course in Canvas? (faculty)

Because courses in Canvas are loaded directly from the Keene State Student Information System, some courses have odd names like, "Experimental."  The course is indeed experimental for that semester but the actual name of the section describes what the course is all about.  If you'd like to change the name of the course, read on!


How-to Canvas Guide with screenshots:


  • Click on “Settings” on the course navigation menu.
  • On the “Course Details” tab you will see a text box to the right of “name”. Click here and edit the course name.
  • Click “update course details” at the bottom of the page to save changes.


Note: course name changes are visible to everyone on the course roster.

NOTE: please do not change the course code!
