You might have a few left-over parameters from the previous  
incarnations of the course.


Main Menu
  -> Modify parameter settings (due dates, etc) for resources and the  
    -> Existing Parameter Settings for Your Resources: Modify Resource  
Parameters - Overview Mode

You might want to delete a lot of those, which might not apply to  
anything anymore.
