D2L - Renaming Course Tools in the Navbar (UW-Madison)


UW-Madison is adopting Canvas as the single, centrally supported learning management system, and discontinuing support for Desire2Learn (D2L) and Moodle. Access to D2L and Moodle will permanently end June 1, 2018. For information about retaining materials from D2L or Moodle, please refer to this document.

When enabled on your D2L instance, it is possible to rename the tools (such as "Content") in your course Navbar.

1. Start by clicking on the Course Admin drop-down menu in the navigation bar, and then Edit Course.

2. Click on tools.jpg (Under the Administration section)

3. Edit the desired name(s) under Custom Navbar Name, and click Check when finished.

4. To go back to the default name, delete the Custom Navbar Name and click Check.

Note:  Renamed tools should reflect their new names immediately, but may not until after the next scheduled restart of the servers' Service Manager which occurs M-F at 7am.
