Update Course Name

The Coursename feature is a specific filter available in the Manage courses and categories section of the Site Administration, that allows you to create a custom program overview for a course. This filter works by updating the course's shortname field into a link or button for end-users to select for more information about the course. The summary that you or an instructor provides in the Coursename filter displays to the end user.
