I no longer use MindTap but cannot remove MT columns from BB Learn Gradebook even though all links are removed from the course

My department moved to a different publisher last summer.  No problem in most of my courses.  But in one class, even though I removed ALL MindTap activity links from the class, I cannot delete them from the gradebook.   There are a LOT of them and I just want them gone....   


Sure I can hide them, but they are all worth points and are throwing off the gradebook total.   I don't really want to go through and edit each one to reduce the points to zero or make sure they aren't adding to the total.  You have to do that 1-by-1 in Blackboard.  


Blackboard Learn 9.1 is the LMS.   Again, all folders of MindTap activities are GONE from the course - the Links are GONE and have been since AUGUST!.  But the gradebook columns are still there and Blackboard thinks they are linked to something, so will not let me delete them.   


Any suggestions are appreciated!

Re: I no longer use MindTap but cannot remove MT columns...

Thanks for the follow up, Laura.


Now I understand the issue better. Yes, having a Learning Management System that truly never deletes anything is both a blessing and a curse! Smiley Happy Hang in there.


It sounds like the suggestion @diane_carter provided for tricking the system is going to be the best bet. The good news is that you can likely do this before your class gets populated with students for the upcoming semester. Good luck, and let us know how it works, @ltrauth.


Fingers crossed for success,
