The course overview page provides aggregated information from the course. 


Course naming conventions

It is recommended that an organization creates a collection of rules that can be used when naming courses and folders in courses, as well as when giving courses friendly names that are easy for students to remember. Universities, for example, often use course codes as a part of the course name. For example: HIS 301 is the code for a history course. Well-chosen naming conventions aid the users in navigating larger structures.

Courses will always have the same sections. These sections consist of announcements (previously known as bulletins), latest changes, tasks (or followup tasks), and events. In addition the planner will populate on the course overview page if the planner dates align with the current date.
