6.1.1. Course Title and Number
The course title (sometimes also called the course name) and number are
important identifiers for your course. It is a good idea to use titles and
numbers that are easy to understand and remember.
For information about how to add your course title and number, see

When you determine the title of your course, consider the following guidelines.

course titles have 50 or fewer characters.

sequence and course information, formatted as “Sequence: Course”.
- Select a course title that clearly indicates the course subject matter.
- Make sure the course title follows search engine optimization (SEO)
