Adding a calendar block to your course site will allow students to see highlighted squares on the days that activities are due. The due dates for activities must be set up within each activity for the due dates to then show up on the calendar block. These due date settings are found in the Edit settings area of any graded activity in the course site.
Adding the Calendar block
Go to the home page of your course site and click Turn editing on.
Look for Add a Block at the bottom of the left column.
From the Add... menu, select Calendar. The page will reload, and the Calendar block will appear on the left side of the page above Add a Block.
To move the Calendar from the default location, click and hold the move icon , then drag the block to the new position.
Click Turn editing off.
Note: If Calendar does not appear in the Add a block menu, it has already been added to the course.
