How to Change or Modify the Course Navbar

All courses in D2L are created with the Default Course Navbar as the active top navigation on the course homepage. Instructors have the ability to change the course navbar to another existing course navbar, or, the instructor can copy and modify the default course navbar for a course.  


To Change the Course Navbar to Another Existing Course Navbar:

  1. Select “Edit Course” in the Navigation Bar of your course in D2L.  (You may have to select the "More" link in the top navigation to see "Edit Course.")

  2. Select “Navigation & Themes” listed under Site Setup.

  3. From the “Active Navbar” dropdown menu, select the desired course navbar.

  4. Click Apply to save your changes.

To Modify the Default Course Navbar:

  1. Select “Edit Course” in the Navigation Bar of your course in D2L.  (You may have to select the "More" link in the top navigation to see "Edit Course.")

  2. Select “Navigation & Themes” listed under Site Setup.

  3. Select the down arrow to the right of "Course Default" then select "Copy".

  4. Select the title of the new navbar copy you just created and make desired changes such as "Add Links".  You can also change the title of the navbar to make it more meaningful to you.  We do not recommend changing the theme.  (You will be the only one with access to this new course homepage.  It will not be available others and other instructors will not see it on their list.)

  5. Select "Save and Close" to save your changes.

  6. From the “Active Navbar” dropdown menu, select the new course navbar.

  7. Select "Apply" to save your changes.

  8. The changes should be reflected immediately in your course navbar.
