That's just the more or less arbitrary number that that particular university uses to identify that particular course.

Looks like course numbers to me. No physics meaning.

Is there any abbreviation to 1D or 1E?

There might be, but if so it will just be a convention that university uses.

The link you gave is specific to McMaster. From glancing over their catalog listings, it appears that the first digit (1-4) indicates the year in which you would normally take the course; i.e., "1" indicates a freshman level course, and "4" indicates a senior level course. The rest of the digits or characters refers to some internal indexing scheme. Note: There is no universal or standardized indexing scheme; each university has its own.
