The Calendar tool is used to display important dates. Instructors can add dates for upcoming tests, due dates for assignments, or special lectures. Course Calendar events appear to all members of the course.

You can access the calendar from the Dashboard, from the Control Panel (click Course Tools and then select Course Calendar), or from the Global Navigation Menu.

A Tool Link will need to be added to the course menu if you want students to access the calendar from the subject site.
