How to Use the Blackboard Calendar


You can use the Calendar to provide students with dates for course related events. Calendar events appear to all members of the course. Common entries include upcoming tests, due dates for assignments, or special lectures. Course items with due dates automatically appear in the course calendar. Only instructors may create additional course calendar events. You can view events by day, week, or month. You can also view and organize upcoming and past events into categories.


The Calendar Interface

A. View events by day, week, or month.  
B. Navigate between months.  
C. Click the plus (+) to create a new event. You can also click inside a date to create an event. Assign the event to the appropriate course calendar, select the date and time, and add a description.   
D. Click an event to manage it. You can also drag and drop an event to change the date.  
E. Select the calendars you want to show, such as institution, personal, or course. By default, all calendars are visible. Optionally, change the color of each calendar to suit your preference. Using a distinct color for each calendar displays at-a-glance which calendar the event is associated to without opening the event  
F. Get an iCal URL for importing your Blackboard Learn calendar into an external calendar application. Once the Learn iCal URL is set up in an external calendar, it is updated dynamically with new Learn calendar events.  
Note:  You cannot import external calendars into this calendar.   


How to Access the Calendar

1. Access the Calendar from the global navigation menu by clicking the arrow next to your name at the top of any page.  
2. Click the Calendar icon to view the calendar.
