New & Improved
Feature for All Users
The calendar has been completely rebuilt, giving users a much
more modern tool – both in terms of look and functionality. This new version
allows personalization and customization. Users can select views (month, week,
day) and color-code the events to differentiate courses and personal items.
Items with due dates automatically appear on the new
Blackboard Learn calendar. If an
instructor changes a due date, the calendar gets updated as well. On the flip
side, moving a calendar item (by clicking on the item or drag and drop)
simultaneously changes a due date for an instructor. Users can also create recurring events by selecting the “repeat” checkbox.
Calendar events may be viewed at once– or filtered to show
only the desired mix of class and personal events. Users can select which
calendars to view, ranging from personal to institution to individual course
These calendar items can also be exported via an iCal feed
to Outlook, Google or other 3rd party calendars.
