About Calendar

Use the Calendar tool to arrange and visualise your unit events in multiple views and enable integration of unit content and your Calendar.

You can use iCal to synchronize the Calendar tool to your personal calendars (such as Outlook and Google Calendar, as well as iPhone, Android, and Blackberry).

There are two different types of events in the Calendar tool:

  • Availability events

    Availability events indicate the availability and due dates of unit objects in the Calendar tool, but do not have to be created using the Calendar tool. Once you are enrolled in a unit, all objects for that unit that you enable to display in the calendar will be visible. You can set due dates for unit objects, edit, and delete availability events directly from the Calendar tool.

  • General (Content) events

    These are events you create within the Calendar tool. You can create multiple events for the same unit object, and include details of presenters, location, and a seating chart for the event.

  • Interface overview

    Use the calendar views area to toggle between different display layouts for events in the calendar content area. Use the Agenda view to group your unit events by Date, Course, or Category - events display in chronological order, and all-day events display at the top of each grouped listing. Use the Day, Week, and Month views to group your events in daily, weekly, or monthly increments. Use the List view to filter your events by Assessment Dropbox, Checklists, Discussions, My Grades, Materials, Modules, Quizzes, and Surveys. You can also make bulk changes to dates and visibilty in the List view. Finally, you can Print, adjust your calendar Settings, or Browse through your calendars.

    Inside the calendar content area, you can create events, set due dates, import events, and browse through your calendar.

    Use the calendar menu to select multiple calendars to display, change the color scheme associated with individual calendars, and add new calendars.

    Use the mini calendar to navigate quickly to a specific day, week, or month. To view a specific day in detail, click the Day calendar view, then click on the day you wish to view in detail in the mini calendar. Your calendar content will load to the day selected in the mini calendar. To view a specific week in detail, click the Week calendar view, then click on any day in the week you wish to view in detail in the mini calendar. To view a specific month in detail, click the Month calendar view, then click on any day in that month you wish to view in detail in the mini calendar. To browse through the mini calendar's months, click the  Show [Previous Month] and  Show [Next Month] icons.
