Stop course and section names from changing

Jump to solution

Is there a way to set permissions so that non-administrators cannot change the name of their courses or sections. I set the course names and section names very specifically for tracking purposes and it's annoying when a teacher goes in and changes the name of his/her course to something like "Period 3."

I hope this is helpful!

We had to do this after some teachers started getting so creative that their students couldn't find their courses based on course title.

How about section names?

Hi again,  @holmer 

You will find that under "Permissions" in your Admin Panels. You can learn more in the Roles and Permissions Chapter of the Canvas Admin Guide.
