*note - if a teachers adds an assessment or lesson with a due date, it will automatically appear on the student's calendar!
The Calendar module has two sections; the To Do List and the Calendar:
The To Do List shows events for one day at a time, with the default set at the current day.
The Calendar will show events by the month, week, or day, with month being the default.
The student can choose which classes to view in both sections by selecting them from the dropdown menu in the upper-right corner
