Adding Recurring Calendar Events
The Calendar tab allows you to post course-specific schedule
items for the month, day, or year. As the course instructor, the Calendar tab
allows you to post calendar events for yourself, for select students in your
course, and/or for your entire class. In addition to being displayed on the Calendar tab
of the course site, ANGEL calendar entries also appear on your students’ My
Page pages on the dates designated for the events. ANGEL allows you
to create recurring calendar events. These events occur a number of times throughout
the course. For example, you may want to remind the students to check their email
a number of times during the term. You can create this calendar event that will
recur daily, weekly, or monthly.
