Calendar example

Calendars highlight important dates and activities, and provide helpful reminders for learners to manage and organise their time. The LEO Calendar tool can display dates relevant to your unit. You may wish to put assignment due dates, chat times and other relevant events.

The key features of the LEO Calendar are:

  • When you add an assignment/activity with a due date within your unit the calendar is automatically updated
  • The events you put in the calendar can be for:
    • specific groups
    • the entire unit or
    • individual reminders to yourself.
  • The calendar may be included in your site by adding a Calendar Block or an Upcoming Events Block
