Dashboard

Course Nicknames

Users can create nicknames for their courses to help them organize their courses on the Dashboard. Course nicknames appear in the Dashboard, course navigation menus, and notification emails. A course nickname does not affect the course name at the account or course level; it only changes the name of the course for the individual user who created the nickname.
