Using the Canvas Calendar for Instructors and Students

The Calendar feature in ELMS-Canvas provides a global view of all course-related assignment and event due dates.  Assignments and events created by instructors within their ELMS course space (or via the Calendar tool itself) are visible within the Calendar.   Calendar entries can be viewed by day, week or month or as chronologically arranged agenda items.  When the assignments and events of all courses in which one is enrolled for the semester are displayed at the same time, the Calendar becomes a great way of viewing and managing project deadlines.  In addition, the Calendar features an option for instructors to schedule times for meetings (appointments) and for students to sign up for a time slot. Used in conjunction with Zoom in your ELMS-Canvas course space, the Scheduler feature is a great way to manage and host office hour appointments.
