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.

    Hi! I installed this plugin, and it appears on my local plugins list. However I couldn't find a way to open it up to use. Can you please provide a brief instructions? Thanks.

    Hello @Leslie, Simply go to site administration > plugins > local plugins > courses to calendar, there you can select 1 or more categories that you wish the courses should appear on the calendar for everyone. Save changes and you should see the courses in the calendar according to their Start and End date. Feel free to comment if you have any other question.

    Hi Andres! Thanks so much for your quick response! I did those steps but the courses did appear on my calendar. Do we use the original calendar?

    What other calendar would you use? This plugin works with the built in Moodle calendar. Did you select the category that the courses are in?

    I did use the Moodle built in calendar. I saw something on the top of calendar says "Detailed month view for: .." then a drop down box to select "All courses" or one of my courses. But the course do not appear on the calendar. By the way I am using moodle 3.4 and Course to Calendar V3.4(2017120600).

    So the courses show up as site events. You do not need to select a course. They will appear on the course start date on the calendar.

    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...
