Using the Calendar to Distribute Content

Canvas Calendar Events can be used to distribute lecture notes or remind students of session details. While creating Events can be a laborious process, doing so benefits the students because:

  • Creating events with due dates provides reminders to students on their Dashboard and in their own Calendar.
  • Students will receive automatic notifications via their preferred communication channels, such as text messaging, Facebook, Twitter, or personal email addresses.
