Recovering Deleted Course Content 

Do you want to restore course content you previously deleted in Canvas? 

If you accidentally delete something in Canvas, it may be possible to restore it. While this method works with certain items, it may not work for all course content. In order to view a list of things you can restore, follow these steps:

  1. Navigate to your course home page.
  2. Move up to the address bar on your internet browser. Your course web address should look something like this: uc.instructure.com/courses/1252300.
  3. At the end of your course address, type “/undelete”. The complete address will be similar to this: uc.instructure.com/courses/1252300/undelete.
  4. This will bring up a page with a list of restorable items. In order to restore an item, click on the “restore” button to the right of the item you want to undelete.
