Here is a quick video from Blackboard describing the important features and capabilities of the calendar in Blackboard Learn.
Juggling competing responsibilities isn't easy. The calendar displays a consolidated view of all institution, course, organization, and personal calendar events. Faculty members can view events by day, week, or month, and can view and organize upcoming and past events into categories.
Instructors can use the course calendar to provide students with dates for course-related events. Course 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 appear automatically in the course calendar. Only instructors may create course calendar events.
