Creating your course starts with a topic. But while knowing your topic is a fantastic starting point, you also need to think about what you’d want to name your course. Your course title is an important part of creating a compelling and engaging learning experience. Below are some tips to help you name your course. We will continue with the example we used in this article for a course for mothers who are working from home with young ones.

Be Descriptive

Your course name should clearly and accurately describe what the course is about. Use descriptive language that highlights the key topics, skills, or concepts that the course covers. Here are some descriptive words to consider:

  1. Efficient
  2. Streamlined
  3. Empowering
  4. Focused
  5. Organized
  6. Balancing
  7. Time-saving
  8. Resourceful
  9. Effective
  10. Proactive
  11. Motivating
  12. Prioritizing

Be Creative

While you want your course name to be descriptive, you also want it to be unique and memorable. Use creative language that captures the essence of your course and makes it stand out from other courses on the same topic.

Use Action-oriented Language

Action-oriented language in your course name can help convey the benefits and outcomes that students can expect from taking your course. This helps to make your course more engaging and motivating for students. In our course example, work-from-home mothers want recommendations that will help them to be more productive at home. So, think about the words that will resonate with them. Here are some words you could use:

  1. Optimize
  2. Master
  3. Boost
  4. Maximize
  5. Improve
  6. Empower
  7. Strategize
  8. Focus
  9. Prioritize
  10. Streamline
  11. Organize
  12. Succeed

Keep It Concise

Keep your course name concise and to the point. You may want to have a course name that says it all. However, try to avoid long or convoluted titles that may be difficult to remember or too complex for students to understand.

Consider Your Target Audience

Choose a course name that will resonate with your target audience. Think about their needs, interests, and motivations, and choose a name that will appeal to them. Here are some titles for the work-from-home mothers:

  1. Proactive Mom: Mastering Productivity at Home and Work
  2. The Work-at-Home Productivity Blueprint for Moms
  3. Time Management for Work-at-Home Moms: From Chaos to Control
  4. Power Up Your Productivity: A Guide for Work-at-Home Moms
  5. The Empowered Work-at-Home Mom: Strategies for Success and Balance

Test It Out

Once you have a few potential course names in mind, test them out with a small group of potential students. Ask for their feedback and opinions to help you choose the name that resonates the most with your target audience.

    Final Thoughts

    By following these tips, you can choose a course name that is descriptive, creative, and engaging, and that effectively communicates the benefits and outcomes of your course to students. If you’ve already created a course, how did you go about naming it? I’d love to hear about it in the comments.
