Calendar

Goal

The Calendar is a tool that provides you with a view of when course activities and exercises are due. The Calendar can also be used to display other events within your course. As a student, you do not have access to manage the Calendar as items added will appear to everyone in the course.  Therefore, only faculty have permission to add items to the Calendar.

Navigate directly to the section on:
