Removing Old Course Content from Canvas

April 15, 2021

As our Canvas environment grows, it is necessary to remove older, outdated content in order to provide the best experience for students and faculty. Information Technology and the Division of Online and Strategic Learning will be removing older content from Canvas.

If you have courses and/or materials that were entered prior to the 2018 Fall Semester, they will be removed from Canvas on September 13, 2021.

If you wish to save your older Canvas course content, you may do so by exporting it to your personal computer or to an online file storage account, such as OneDrive. To find out more about how to export a course package from Canvas, please visit this the Technology HelpDesk Knowledge Base article:
