Courses to Calendar

This plugin allows you to display the courses in the Calendar as Site Events. Sometimes and for some reasons, you want to display to everyone your courses in the Calendar and this is exactly what this plugin does.

You are able to decide what categories of courses can be displayed as site events in the Moodle Calendar.

Features

  • From the calendar, users can access a course through a Link.
  • As an admin, you can update the course's date directly from the calendar. It supports drag and drops functionality so it automatically updates the course with the new dates.
  • As an admin, you can update the course's summary from the calendar.
  • You can change the text link that takes the user to the course from the calendar.
  • You can change the courses categories that will display the courses in the calendar as Site Events.

How to use?

  1. Go to Site Administration > Plugins > Local > Courses to Calendar,  access the plugin's settings and select 1 or more categories that you wish your courses to be displayed in the calendar.
  2. After you save, the plugin will automatically run in the background and add to the Calendar your courses as long as they have the Start Date and End Date enabled.
  3. Now you will be able to edit the events to update the courses, or simply by updating the courses the events will be updated.

    I just update the plugin to the newest version. However the courses still don't show up on the calendar. Is any hint or suggestions you can provide? Thanks.

    You can email me direct if you want at emmar@ecboces.org. Send me a screenshot of the coursetocal settings and then the course edit settings page for a course that should be showing up and the calendar page for the day of the course start date...

    First of all, many thanks for Emma for helping me to get it work! And to Andres for the response and instructions!
    New question: Would the latest version of this plugin work on Moodle 3.6? Does any one has experience or comments?
    Thanks.

    I am not sure now that you removed the plugin. Try reinstalling it and then unselecting the category that you selected in the settings.

    Otherwise, remove the plugin and manually delete from calendar.

    When I install, it gets stuck on the settings page where I have the option to change the default text for links. Even after saving the settings, it goes back to the same screen. Moodle 3.8.4.

    Hi Stephen, That's odd. Can you make a small video and share it to helpdesk@lmsdoctor.com ? I would love to take a look.
