I accidentally course copied from the wrong course. How do I clear out everything so I can try again?

Unfortunately D2L lacks an easy way to return a course shell to its initial, empty state. You will need to manually remove everything from the course.

These instructions assume you have already logged in to D2L and entered the course in which you wish to work.
