April 12, 2018

Get into your course and look at the URL displayed in the browser. It has the format: Remove everything after the courseID then add ‘/undelete’ so you have something that looks like: When you hit Enter, a list of deleted items that can be restored is shown. After restoring an element, inspect it carefully as it’s possible that some associated data may have been lost for good.
