Rename your old Canvas course to include the academic term

If you have several Canvas courses with the same name, it’s recommended that you modify the course title by adding the academic term. For example, Exercise Physiology -> Exercise Physiology (Spring 2020). This will make it easier to identify the exact class that contains the existing Media Gallery media items.
