Implications to consider when changing a course version name

The new course version name is only displayed to admins accessing the Course Admin page. It does not update the course title in the course page, catalog, Admin Tools page, or anywhere else the course title is displayed. Changing the version name simply changes the name of the version for admins only. If you would like a new course title to be displayed throughout the platform, learn how to update a course title.


Changing a course version name also does not create a new course version, it simply changes the name of the current version. Learn more about how and why to copy a course version.
