Have you ever copied a previous course into the current term’s course shell and then realized it was the wrong course? Or have you ever just wanted to start from scratch in your course design of your D2L course? If so, D2L now has a course reset feature to allow faculty to “start over” with their course shell.
The course reset permanently deletes everything in the course including all content, activities, grade book items, etc., but does not affect user enrollments.
Who can reset a course and where is it found?
The course reset feature is only available to D2L Admins. If you’d like your course reset, email your request to the Teaching and Learning team at email@example.com. Include the course information, such as term, course id and section information in the email.
What if students have already started using the course?
If the course has started, it may be too late to start over. In that case, you will have to delete content, assignments, etc. on an individual basis.
If you have course content in Moodle you would like to use in D2L it is no problem to import it.
In Moodle: Backup your Moodle course and then download that file to your computer.
In D2L: Go to Course Tools →Course Admin →Import/Export/Copy Components
Select “Import Components”and choose “from a course package”
Upload the Moodle backup file and then click “Import all Components”
You will need to go through the content and other materials once imported to clean up the structure and to ensure things came across OK. We’ve noticed issues with the following Moodle items not transferring properly to D2L (Labels, Multi-select question types and matching question types)
Verify imported content in D2L and adjust as needed.
