The Card View Dashboard displays course cards for all your favorite courses. Course Cards can help you organize your courses by adding a nickname or customizing the color, which is synced with the color shown for the course in the Calendar.
If one of your courses includes a long or confusing name, you can create a nickname for your course.
Course nicknames appear in the Dashboard, Course Navigation Menu, course breadcrumbs, and notification emails.
A course nickname does not affect the course name at the account or course level; it only changes the name of the course for the individual user who created the nickname.
If you need to know the original name of the course, you can hover over the nickname and the original name will appear. Additionally, the course code is not affected and always displays on the course card for course reference.
To add a nickname, click the More Options icon , then type the name in the Nickname field . Click the Apply button .
To remove a nickname, open the card options and remove the nickname. The Nickname field will display the original name of the course.
