Bulk Deleting Course Information

Bulk deleting course information is most useful at the end of a course. It allows you to select information to be deleted from a course and keeps the rest of the course areas for use in the future. For example, you can delete students and grades from a course, but keep the content.

You can also delete any selected course or other materials as well.

When deleting users, bulk delete deletes all users with a role of student from the course. Teaching assistants, graders, and course builders will not be deleted.

Consider archiving the course first so that you can restore to its exact state before a bulk delete.
