If you add closing dates to an Assignment, Forum, Quiz or Chat activity
within your course, these events will show up on the Calendar
automatically. You can view previous or future months on Calendar by
clicking the left/right arrows next to the current month's name (Fig. 7).
Today's date is always outlined in black. Other events are color coded
based on what the event is (color key under Calendar). You can hide or
show various categories of events by clicking on the color key.
For example, if you wanted to hide Group event dates (events assigned
to learner Groups you create), click Group events on the bottom of the
Calendar. This would hide all group events, and the color code would
disappear from the link on the calendar. To show the events again, click
the Group Events link again.
