Blackboard Calendar Tool

Who said the New Year is the only opportunity available to pledge improvement?  I am going to pledge improvement in September.  This month I vow to be more organized.  Thus, the blog this week will be dedicated to exploring various technology tools available that will assist in getting and staying organized.

Today's Tool --

Blackboard Calendar

Note: Your instructor controls which tools are available. If this tool is not available, your instructor may have disabled it.

The Bb Calendar tool allows you to view events by day, week, month, or year. You can view and organize upcoming and past events into categories. Personal Information should be placed on your Google Calendar located within your SU email environment not Bb.

You will see different options in the calendar depending on where you access it. When you access the calendar through a course only those calendar items that relate to your course appear.

Course Calendar events appear to all members of the course. Common entries include upcoming tests, due dates for assignments, or special lectures. If you access the calendar while in your course, you will only see the entries you have added.

How to Open the Calendar 
1. On the Course Menu, click Tools.

2. On the Tools page, click Calendar.
