Once we've decided on the layout of the sections of our…course, it's important to write titles to help orientate our learners.…So that's what we'll do now.…I' m on the course page here and you'll notice that each…section is called topic one, topic two, topic three and so on.…These names, are reflected in the navigation block to the side as well.…And the top section is known as General.…These aren't particularly helpful, so I'm going to rename them.…To do that, I need to turn…on the editing because if I just try…to type straight into the course page, nothing happens.…
To turn on the editing, I either click the button Turn Editing On, top…right or scroll down to the Administration block and click the link Turn Editing On.…And when that happens, a lot of new icons…appear on the course page, which we'll look at later.…But for now, what we need is the Configuration icon, that…in this theme looks a little bit like a cog wheel.…It will be different according to the theme that you use.…I'm going to click the Edit icon of the top summary and change it to say Welcome.…
