Setting up your Calendar Display

As a student or instructor, once you are enrolled in a course, its events are automatically added to your Calendar tool. To see course events when you use the Calendar tool for the first time, select the course from the list in the calendar management area. This will "activate" the course calendar and show its availability events.

Each course appears under My Calendars in the calendar management area, with its own identifying color assigned by default. To change the default colors, see Change calendar colors.

Setting your active course calendar

You can switch your current org unit by changing your active course calendar. Click a course under My Calendars in the calendar management area.

Any event you create, and any schedule you view, applies to the course in the Calendar position in the calendar management area.

Active Calendar and My Calendars list

Because you can seamlessly move from one course to another by clicking on a course in My Calendars, you can plan schedules simultaneously for multiple courses, by day, week, or month. For more information, see "Quick create" an event.

Note: Even when you set your current calendar, the calendar content area will, by default, show events from all the courses listed under Calendars. To filter the view, clear the field by the course's name.

Set your active course calendar

Click a course name under My Calendars in the calendar management area. This switches your mode in the Learning Suite to the course you selected.

Remove a calendar from your display

  1. Click the context menu for the course name in the calendar management area.
  2. Select Dismiss icon Remove Calendar.

Filter calendar events from your display

To hide a course's events from view in the calendar content area, clear the checkbox next to its name in the calendar management area.

Change calendar colors

  1. Click the context menu for the course name in the calendar management area.
  2. Select Calendar color icon Change Calendar Color.
  3. Click the desired calendar color. Lighten or darken the color by moving the arrow on the side of the color bar up and down.

Note: To help you meet visual accessibility standards, there is a built-in WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guideline) checker on the color selection page. Be aware that if you choose a shade that does not meet these guidelines (for example, the contrast between the text color and the background color is too low), the Correct iconcheck mark by WCAG AA will be replaced by a Warning icon warning or Error icon error icon to alert you to possible accessibility issues.
