Even after cleaning, Canvas duplicated my content.

Hi all - I don't even know where to begin with my Canvas frustration. 


I maintain a "sandbox" set up by my college. Before this semester began I diligently went through the shell and eliminated all duplicate pages and content (assignments, discussions, etc.). There were absolutely no dates on any assignments or discussions. All had been stripped out. 


I thought I had what was a very streamlined sandbox to use as an import. 


When I imported the course...lo and behold - the entire thing was duplicated...modules, syllabus, home page...all of it...and it did so all out of order. It took me a few (seriously frustrating) hours to clean it all out. I have no idea why it would duplicate the material. 


So, I went back through the course and unpublished/deleted/turned off the duplications. Yesterday I met with a student and she said she was confused by the duplications. I was kind of shocked. Looking at her Canvas student view there were many duplications I had turned off. 


I'm seriously at a loss for what is going on. I would surely like to hear from Canvas on this. 


Thanks. From Colorado...
