Delete All Content from a Course

It is possible for LSC-Online staff to reset your course so that all content is deleted. Contact us using VTAC chat or email online@lonestar.edu and request a course reset. If you do not wish to wait, follow the instructions below to delate all content yourself.

You should ONLY do this when the wrong content or duplicate content has been imported into your course. Make sure there are no other instructors in your course.
