SP18’s New Common Request

As PDW closed and we headed into the first week of classes this week, we noticed an increasingly common request- clearing out D2L courses.  The causes were diverse, from changing instructors, copying the wrong materials to wanting to avoid using the materials loaded by the department.  We even had one request where we ended up clearing out the same section twice after it was discovered the right materials had indeed been loaded initially.

Unfortunately, we don’t have a “magic button” to delete courses.  We have to go into each tool and delete the materials.  This does the job most of the time, but records will remain in the logs and “Restore” areas of the course.

I’m not sure what this means going forward.  In the meantime, we’ll keep on cleaning…
