Adding Calendar events

From: Moodle 1.9 Essential Training for Students

Video: Adding Calendar events

The calendaring system inside of Moodle will not only keep track of campus wide and course events but it will also keep track of your personal calendar as well. To add an event to your personal calendar, simply find the Calendar block inside of Moodle. In my case, I have got the Calendar block over here on the right-hand side. We can then click on the link for the month April 2009. The calendar view opens up and in the upper right corner of the Calendar is a button for New Event. We'll click on that button and then give the event a name. We are going to call this our, Study Session. We then give a Description for the study session. Here we'll just simply type in, Study group for coral reef ecology class.

Adding Calendar events

The calendaring system inside of Moodle will not only keep track of campus wide and course events but it will also keep track of your personal calendar as well. To add an event to your personal calendar, simply find the Calendar block inside of Moodle. In my case, I have got the Calendar block over here on the right-hand side. We can then click on the link for the month April 2009. The calendar view opens up and in the upper right corner of the Calendar is a button for New Event. We'll click on that button and then give the event a name. We are going to call this our, Study Session. We then give a Description for the study session. Here we'll just simply type in, Study group for coral reef ecology class.

As we scroll down in the window, we can now set the date for the event. We are going to set up our Study Session for the 29th April 2009. And we are going to set that to be at 8 O'clock. Now remember that your calendar is set up on the 24 hour clock. So 8 O'clock in the evening will be 20:00 hours. We'll select 20. Then we can set the Duration of time that our Study Session is going to last for. Here we'll select the radio button for Duration in minutes and we'll type in 30 minutes. We are not going to repeat this Study Session. So we are only going to have one calendar event. So leave the radio button under Repeat set to, No repeats. And then click the Save changes button. The event then appears on Wednesday, the 29th April and it's showing up in this blue color. The same blue color that's reflected up in our events key in the upper right-hand corner that we can see that it's a user event.

If you look down on your calendar though and we look at April 2009 on the 29th, the orange color for the course events is still showing up rather than the blue color. This is because there is a hierarchy set up for the color sequence to appear inside of these days. So a course event has a greater weight to it than a user event. So the overall day is showing that there is something that needs to happen inside of your course rather than just a user event. But when we are on that particular day we can see that we have both the course events and our individual user events.

I am going to go ahead and return back to my course by clicking on the lyndaU icon in the upper left-hand corner.
