Greetings, Rasha!

To begin with, you must be an admin to delete a course or have rights granted to you to delete courses. If you are an admin, then go to the admin menu and click on "courses" and then "add or edit courses". You should see a list of categories on your system. Click on the link for the category (if you haven't set up any of those yet, try Miscellaneous). That should give you a table of all the courses. Clicking on the X will delete the course. Be careful, of course, because you can't get it back!

Second, there is a wiki for moodle documentation
http://docs.moodle.org/en/Main_Page

And also a few books and videos out.

Hopefully, one of these will get you started!

Dear A. T. Wyatt,

I too wanted to delete a course.

I followed your instructions which all made sense. The process does not delet the course however. Instead, after confirming the deletion of the course (in this case called 'coursename'), I get this message:

When I return to the course listing, the course is still there.

What (if anything) am I doing wrong?

With kind thanks,

Francois.

Francois,

I did not see a response to your second attempt to delete a course. I was wondering if you found a way?

I am a graduate student using Moodle for my classes. I accidentally enrolled in the wrong class; can I remove that course from "My Course?" or remove myself from that course?
