D2L - Managing a course with the Calendar tool (UW-Madison)


UW-Madison is adopting Canvas as the single, centrally supported learning management system, and discontinuing support for Desire2Learn (D2L) and Moodle. Access to D2L and Moodle will permanently end June 1, 2018. For information about retaining materials from D2L or Moodle, please refer to this document.

The Desire2Learn calendar provides an easy way to organize a course by its time flow. Use the calendar to keep students aware of deadlines, and on track with course content.

Many course tools can automatically add dates to the calendar:
  • Quiz: Under the "Restrictions" tab, set a start/end date make the quiz active, and check "Display in calendar"
  • Discussion: Under the "Properties" tab, set a date in the "Locking Options" section and check "Display in calendar"
Additionally, any item that appears in the Content outline (or an entire module) can be attached to a calendar deadline. In the calendar, click Create Event and use the Add Content button. Click the round radio button for the module or topic you wish to be added to the calendar event.
