Canvas for Instructors - Renaming Module Items

You can rename module items to make their titles more meaningful to students.

  1. Locate the item in the module, and click the item's kebab.
  2. Click Edit

    kebab is to the right of each item

  3. In the Title field, change the name of the item, and click Update.

    Enter new name in title field

If you use this method to edit the title of a file in your module, Canvas does not rename the file, instead, Canvas simply changes the name of the link that appears in the module. If you would like to change the file's name, you can change the file's name through the Files area.
