Posting Assignments on a Calendar page
(for teachers)


Example of Calendar webpageMany junior high and high school teachers post their assignments on online calendars. You can use one calendar page and label the assignments for each class, or have separate calendar pages for each class.

Pro: Keeps an archive of past assignments; can be labeled for each class; can automatically show events from the school or district calendar.

Con: Must enter assignments one at a time (unless you plan far enough in advance to make batch uploading worthwhile).

 

How to add assignments

  1. Log in and open your calendar page.
  2. Click the Edit button at the top of the page. (You should then see the black Edit toolbar underneath the blue toolbar.)
  3. Click Add Event on the black Edit toolbar.
  4. In the new window that appears:
    • Change the Date to be the date of the assignment.
    • Fill in the Title box with the title of the assignment.
    • Fill in the Description box with any extra details (when the details are very brief, it can be better to put them in the Title box and leave the Description box empty)
  5. Click the Done button when you are finished -- this will save your new assignment and close the popup window.

If you are posting lots of assignments, you may want to use the Category feature to color-code assignments for different classes, or the Import feature to import assignments from an Excel spreadsheet. Contact the Assistant Webmaster for more information.

  4. Hover over the title of the assignment you want to edit or delete.
