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.

  1. Setting your active course calendar
  2. Remove a calendar from your display
  3. Filter calendar events from your display
  4. Change calendar colors

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.

The active calendar is the course named in the Calendar section of the calendar management area. You can set your active calendar by clicking on a course in the My Calendars list.

Active Calendar and My Calendars list

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 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 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 check mark by WCAG AA will be replaced by a warning or error icon to alert you to possible accessibility issues. See Customizing colors for more information.
