You can try using a style file that forces the inclusion of a problem
title. The style file can be linked as a default to a course.

I have three very simple examples which I just published open source and
system-wide. /res/ohiou/capa/styles

I use problem_title_nodate.sty for my courses:

<definetag name="problem">
        <tex><problem><displaytitle /></tex>
              <p><displaytitle /></p>

<definetag name="/problem">
Every time this runs into the <problem> tag, it inserts <displaytitle>
as well. We've been pulling the <displaytitle> and <displayduedate> from

We don't have any problems with 2-column printing in courses.

If you are a co-author on a library you can print out the contents.

If you are a course coordinator you would need to create a course and
load everything from a folder in. Clearly this is not optimal.
