How do I remove module items?

How do I remove module items?

You can remove individual content items from your modules.

Removing a item will only remove it from the selected module. If you have included the item in other modules, they will not be affected.

Open Modules

Open Modules

In Course Navigation, click the Modules link.

Remove Module Item

Click the Options icon [1] and select the Remove link [2].

Confirm Removal

Confirm Removal

Click the OK button.


Do I have to do another step before the deleted module units disappear?


Are the items not removing from the module itself? Or are you hoping to delete the item entirely from your course. This lesson only shows how to remove an item from a module. If this doesn't seem to work, you can try refreshing the page or clearing your cache. Otherwise, you can use the Report a Problem link from the Help menu to inform our support staff that something isn't working correctly.

If you want the item totally removed from the course, you will need to go where the item lives (Assignments, Quizzes, Discussions) and delete it from there.
