Canvas currently provides a feature that allows instructors to “undelete” course content that has been recently deleted.

To restore deleted content follow these steps:

  1. Navigate to the course in which you need to restore deleted content
  2. In the address (URL) box of your browser, note that the address of your course is https://uncg.instructure.com/courses/(your course number) with the “your course number” being an actual number.
  3. Following the course number in the address, add a forward slash followed by the word “undelete.” Your address should then look something like https://uncg.instructure.com/courses/12345/undelete
  4. When navigating to this URL you will be presented with all course material that has been deleted. Simply restore deleted content by pressing the “restore” button next to deleted content you wish to restore.
