How do I reset course content?

Canvas recently introduced a new page design called the New Canvas User Interface (UI). Depending on your Canvas view, your page design may vary from the images shown in this lesson. However, the functionality and location of the components remain the same.

If you have permission as an instructor, you can reset course content with your course Settings in Canvas. However, resetting course content permanently removes all content and it cannot be recovered.

When you reset course content, you reset all content in the course including:

  • Course ID—external URLs will no longer direct back to the course unless they are manually changed
  • LTI tools added at the course level

 

Note: If you cannot reset course content, this feature has been restricted by your institution.
