Leave a course without asking for permission

Seguir

That is pretty much it, I just do not understand why is not possible to leave a course if you want it to and I believe that is a good feature that SCHOOLOGY should have.

    I am enrolled in a course

    The Process of Writing - A Three Tier Approach: Section 1 

    This course was created by Virtual Village Classroom

    Several members of the class have been trying to leave FOR YEARS. Yes, YEARS. The first one I saw was from a member on Wed Dec 21, 2016 at 6:47 pm "Can an admin please remove me from this course...Thanks"

    No response. He continued to ask in 2017, 2018 and again in 2019. No response. No response from anyone for 2.5 years.
     
    I have asked as well. Other members say they have asked with no response. I've used every Schoology communication method I can think of.  I have emailed the company and tried to call the numbers listed on the company website. I have used facebook messenger. No response. The phone numbers are not accepting calls. The Virtual Village Classroom's Facebook page has not been updated since November 2016.
     
    I finally found course updates with personal phone numbers. I called. No response. I texted. Only one person has ever replied to my requests. and she told me that she hasn't worked for the company for years and has no access to the account. She referred me to the company owner. It is his number on the website. When you call it says it isn't a working number. I am quite certain the company that created the course is out of business.
     
    At least one other student has tried to open a help ticket about this. He was told that only admins can remove a member of a class.
     
    I recently tried to open a help ticket and was told I can't because I am a Basic member and they no longer open help tickets for Basic members. I was directed to the new guidebook/support page which told me that only admins can remove a person from a class. 
     
    I have also been advised me to turn off notifications (as if too many notifications was the reason I want to leave the class). There are no course notifications because the company that created the course has gone out of business. Except for the notifications of the others trying to get out of the course. That is not the point.
     
    The class has an "Indefinite" grading period. It will NEVER expire, and I will literally NEVER be able to leave without this feature.
     
    If schools have big concerns about students leaving classes, make this a feature only for adult learners. But please, please, make this feature a real thing!!!

    Agreed with this. There are teachers that leave, or just forget to archive a course, so we have students with well over 30 courses they are "taking." This feature would be great, and allow the students to access their courses quickly.

    Yes please create a role permission to allow a user to leave a course. Teachers who create their own course and use perpetual grading periods don't clean up their rosters, and later on members of that course want to leave.

    It's been a year and still nothing. I'm trying to delete my account, but I can't even do that. This is getting annoying.

    Another school year is drawing to a close and I am stuck in a class that has no teacher, no admin, no grading. The creator doesn't even have an account on Schoology, the owner can't access the account. Yet Schoology won't even take a minute to simply delete the unused course. Give it an expiration date, and if a teacher wants it, they can log in and claim it. But they won't in my case. And I could leave. But no. That will not happen because I am a free user and have no support.

    Hi

     

    I added gr 11 courses to my sons courses (he is in gr 8) - how can I delete these as I see no more courses can be added and he might need to in future. Have sent messages to "members" to remove. Why don't we have the function to "Archive" and/or "Delete" courses?

    Hi Dillon, 

    This is to prevent students from accidentally unenrolling from courses and similarly to prevent them from intentionally unenrolling from courses they should be enrolled in. Please let us know if you don't hear back from the course administrators. 

    There is no limit on the number of courses that can be added. To view the full list of courses your account is enrolled in, click My Courses in the upper-right corner of the Course Dashboard.

    I'm a college student who no longer uses Schoology and would like to delete my account. I'm only enrolled in one course from 2016-17, and I got no response from my instructor when I emailed asking to be unenrolled. Can an admin remove me from the course or just delete my account for me?

    Thank you for finally striving to take a look at this issue. It has been YEARS since this thread was started. I understand that for students this might be good, but for ADULT learners, there is no reason to have to be locked into a course. Thank you.

    Hi Racquel,

    You may follow the steps to delete your account here: How do I delete my account?

    Please note if you are a member of any course or group, you will first need to contact the course admin to request to leave the course and leave any group before deleting your account. You can find more info here: How do I leave a course or group?

    I hope this helps!

    My Schoology account is LITTERED with courses I've been added to unnecessarily and I can't get out of them.  It really frustrates me and makes it harder to pick out the courses I need to be looking at.  It's nearly two dozen courses that I want to be removed from or at least hide/archive and it's impossible.  Maybe directions need to be better for noobs on Schoology or something because they start up Schoology courses for every little thing and then I end up stuck in a course for years that I only needed to be in for like an hour that never should have been a course to begin with.

    Schoology will only help you if you have a paid account. I suggest you delete your account. I, unfortunately, cannot do that because I am one of a few teachers in our group. Schoology isn't adding new "free" teacher accounts so I can't delete mine as long as we use Schoology. I am trying to get our organization to leave Schoology because of this.
