      Description

      When a course is created, the creator must enter a name and short name. This strongly implies that names are the concern of the creator, not the teacher. The teacher should therefore be normally prevented from changing them.

      Possible solution: add a new capability moodle/course:updatecoursename with default value Not set in Teacher role.
