Is there a way to prevent instructors from changing the course name or course code? For administrative purposes we need to keep the course ID number in place.
Hi there, Ann Kenady!
You may want to check out the guide How do I set details for an account?. Scroll to the section "View Restriction Settings" and look at the first item, "Don't let teachers rename their courses."
Admittedly, I don't know exactly what information this prevents, whether it's just the Course Name, or if it is also the Course Code as you mentioned. I am going to share this with the Canvas Admins group for some additional eyes and help.
Thank you! Apparently this also affects their ability to change the course code. If we limit instructor's ability to do this, could we encourage them to use the dashboard nickname feature? In other words, these are independent functions, right?
