Moodle - Student Help
This section of the Help Files covers the Moodle Calendar.
The four types of calendar event, these are:
Global events - these events are created by the Moodle Administrators and occur over all the papers. The events are ones such as the beginning and end of semesters and holidays.
Course events - these events relate to this paper alone and could be something like an important assessment.
Group events - These events can only be viewed by members of a group. They can be for such things as a meeting to discuss a group assignment.
User events - These are the only type of events that a student can create and are only viewable by the student. They could be any kind of personal reminder or note.
