Bulk Delete Imported Web Content?

Follow

Hi! Our school just got Schoology and I'm playing with it before I onboard students. I imported content from a class in Canvas and before I really knew what I was doing, I added all of those imported resources into a course. Now I have a bajillion web content resources in that course that I don't want! The bulk edit feature isn't available under the "Option" dropdown box. 
Do I have to individually delete each and every resource or is there a quicker way to do it? Seriously, there are over 100 resources I pulled in. Help, please!

    Hi Paige, 

    Thank you for reaching out in the Schoology Community! 

    Unfortunately, there is no way to bulk delete web content resources. For future reference, the Bulk Edit feature is available for graded materials. You can read more about that here: How do I use the Bulk Edit feature in Courses?

    As a workaround, I would recommend that you consider just deleting the course and creating a new one. Before you do so, however, you may want to save the materials you do want to keep to your Resources for ease of transfer into the new course. You can find details about deleting courses here: How do I delete a Course? For more information about the Resource Center, please see this article: Resource Center.

    Hope this helps!

    Hi Paige,

    Yes, you should still be able to delete the course from Schoology. However, this change will not be reflected in PowerSchool and may cause future sync issues, as updates to Courses within Schoology are not transferred to PowerSchool.

    In this case, if you would rather delete the course than delete the materials, please talk to your System Admin about the details of your particular SIS integration. You can find your System Admin under Support Contacts in Support located in the footer of your profile.

    You can also read more the PowerSchool integration here: PowerSchool Implementation and Configuration Guide.
