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.


  • 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.

    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 ? I would love to take a look.

    I could attempt to make a video. On the discussion forums, I posted there too but with an image. Basically, after the installation, I can modify any of the settings (I believe it's just one). After I click on Save. The screen reloads but without the option for changing the setting but just the New Setting screen. I have to manually leave the page but if I go to Site Admin-> Notifications, it comes back. So I uninstall.

    Hi Stephen, provide me with the link to the discussion forum and I'll try to replicate your issue and notify you if there is something for us to fix.

    I have run it on 3.8 and just tested successfully on 3.9. Andres, can you add those versions to this?

    It was resolved for Stephen. We figured out what was causing the issue and resolved it. Basically, he had all categories hidden and the plugin needs at least 1 available for the settings, otherwise it doesn't allow to move forward from the new settings page.

    Hi, is anyone feel Moodle get slow after this plugin installed. In my site after install plugin, when each student login it showing loading "Course overview" for around more then 1 minute or sometimes it showing database overload error also.

    My Moodle version is (v3.7.6)
    Installed plugin version:Courses to Calendar v3.6.2

    Course overview should not be affected at all. We are currently we reworking the plugin to avoid a large database call when system admin settings page is loaded but that is the only I have noticed. Have you turned debugging on?

    @Sabu snp , The latest version fixes the loading problem. Feel free to upgrade and test.
