The Calendar tool allows the creation and management of course events. In the course calendar, set up recurring events or show dates from other tools such as Submissions or Quiz deadlines.
Students will see up to 14 upcoming events or deadlines in the Calendar widget, which is displayed on the Course Home page. Students can access the full calendar from the widget and subscribe to it with a preferred calendar software, like Google Calendar, Outlook, or iPhone calendar.
Use the Calendar tool to create events from scratch as well as to show Due dates for Content or assignments already built into the course. See Adding Calendar Events for more information.
