D2L updates & quick tips

Removing Courses

leave a comment »

Desire2Learn is configured so that faculty can NOT delete old courses from their My Courses lists.  However, there are some work-arounds that allow you to de-clutter your D2L welcome screen.

First, don’t forget that you can hide individual semesters. Just  click on the small box next to each semester or year heading:

hide courses 1

However, if you want to fully remove a course from your list, instead of just collapsing your semester headings, try this:

1) Click in to the course that you want to remove

2) Click on Classlist in the course navbar

3) Find your name on the list of participants. Check the box to the left of your name.

4) Scroll to the top of the list, and click on the unenroll button. It is circled below:

hide courses 2
You will be be taken to an error screen when you click the unenroll confirmation message, but when you follow the link back to the My Home page, the course will be gone.
Remember that the course has not actually been deleted. It has just been removed from your list of enrollments. If you do this by mistake, contact our office (724-738-4220), and we can put it back on your account.
