Cobra Learning - Setting up your calendar display

CobraBanner

Use the Calendar tool to arrange and visualize your course events in multiple views and enable integration of course content and your Calendar.

Setting up your calendar display

Once you are enrolled in a course as a student or instructor, its events are automatically added to your Calendar tool. To see course events when you use the Calendar tool for the first time, select the course from the calendar menu. This will "activate" the course calendar and show its availability events.

Setting your active course calendar

You can switch your current org unit by changing your active course calendar. Select a course from the calendar menu to activate it.

Active calendars in the calendar menu

Note  Even when you set your current calendar, the calendar content area will, by default, show events from all the courses listed in the calendar menu. To filter the view, click the Remove Calendar icon by the course's name you wish to remove from view in the calendar menu.

Set your active course calendar

Click on a course name from the calendar menu.

Remove a calendar from your display

Click the Remove Calendar icon beside the course you want to remove from the calendar menu area.

Change calendar colors

  1. Click the Change Calendar Colors icon from the calendar menu area.
  2. Select the course you want to change the color for from the drop-down list in Calendar Colors. Click the desired calendar color. Lighten or darken the color by moving the arrow on the side of the color bar up and down.
  3. Click Done.

Note  To help you meet visual accessibility standards, there is a built-in WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guideline) checker on the color selection page. Be aware that if you choose a shade that does not meet these guidelines (for example, the contrast between the text color and the background color is too low), the check mark by WCAG AA will be replaced by a warning or error icon to alert you to possible accessibility issues. See Customizing colors in  Cobra Learning - Screen magnifiers, zooming and color contrast tips  for more information.
