Create Calendar Event


Calendar events can be created to keep students up to date on important course events. Instructions can create one-time or recurring events using the calendar tool. Reminders can be set for items in D2L such as Assignments and Quizzes or items outside of D2L such as synchronous sessions and presentations.
