Hi pa.it@cbs.dk‌,

Here is a bit of Javascript that can change the button text

Using jQuery:

$('#start_new_course').text("Start a new project room");

Using pure JavaScript:

document.getElementById('start_new_course').innerText = "Start a new project room"

You may need to wrap the code in a document.ready() so the button is properly loaded before the code tries to make the change.

This guide has information on how to upload custom JavaScript: https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-10862-4214724282

pa.it@cbs.dk,

You might start with the javascript override file, but not everything in a course can be changed in this method and I am not completely sure this will work in this instance.  You might also check out the Canvas Admins‌ page or the Canvas Developers‌ page for more tips.
