How do I restore a deleted item in UNT?

Instructors can access Canvas’s “undelete” page, where they can restore assignments, discussions, quizzes, and other items that were accidentally deleted. To access this page, instructors should go to their course and then insert “undelete” in the last portion of the URL at the top of their page. An example of this URL is https://unt.instructure.com/courses/12345/undelete.

Why can’t students see my course?

There could be several different reasons why students cannot see a course or a course’s content:

  • Either the course or the course content is unpublished. To ensure your course is published, check that the “Published” button on your course’s home page in the right Sidebar is green. To ensure your course’s content is published, check that the modules, assignments, quizzes, etc. have a green checkmark next to them (Image 1).
  • The semester hasn’t started yet. Although students are populated one week before the semester start date, students can only access the course content on the first class day unless the course settings have been adjusted to allow them to access it earlier.
  • The course is not displaying on the student’s Dashboard. To ensure an approach can be easily found, students can navigate to All Courses from the Global Navigation bar and click the star to the left of a course to pin it to the Dashboard.
