Schedule bulletins

Teachers can now schedule when a bulletin should be visible for students and when it should be removed:

Activities and homework in calendar events

Until now, tasks and  assignments have only appeared in calendar events if they were part of a plan.

Now, you can connect homework, tasks and assignments which are not part of a plan to calendar events.

To connect the activity to an event:

  1. Create a calendar event in a course
  2. Add an activity
  3. When setting the deadline, select “At a specific event”
  4. Select an event from the date picker (events are highlighted in green)
  5. When you click “Save” the activity will appear in the calendar event

Homework is labeled with an ‘H’ in the calendar event.
