Change Link Names to Reflect Tool Names

    This idea has been developed and deployed to Canvas

     

    There have been a lot of minor updates to standardize terminology in Canvas (especially updating “wiki pages” to “pages”) but one place where non-standard language is still present is in the RCE sidebar when you’re editing pages. The links in the Course Navigation portion of the sidebar should match the actual names of the tools you are linking to (“Announcements” instead of “Announcements List”, etc.).

    Here is a list of what is under “Course Navigation” and what I think they should say instead:

     

    Current TitleSuggested Title
    Assignment ListAssignments
    Wiki HomePages
    Discussions IndexDiscussions
    Course SyllabusSyllabus
    Announcement ListAnnouncements
    Files IndexFiles

    People417px-Checkmark_green.svg.png
    Modules417px-Checkmark_green.svg.png

     

    I don’t see an existing feature request that is similar. The closest is this one - Pages, Wiki Pages, Content Pages -- Need Consistent Naming in Canvas – but it’s broader and does not address the specific area.
