D2L Navigation Bars (navbars) Made Easy
After you have your navbar set with all the links you want, it can be frustrating to start a new semester from scratch with the “course default” navbar.

GOOD NEWS! You don’t need to!
If you “Copy Components” from an older course each semester (here’s how), be sure to include “Navigation Bars.”
Then, all you need to do is set the *copied* navigation bar as “active” for the new course site.
Here’s how:

1. Click [Edit Course]
2. Click [Navigation & Themes]

3. Pull down the window below¬†Under “Active Navbar” and select the Navbar you just copied.

4. Click [Apply]
