Adding Modules to Calendar

0 Kudos

It would be very helpful if there was a way to assign modules or pages to the Canvas calendar/to do list instead of just assignments.  The way it's set up right now, it's very easy, and even intuitive, for kids to click on and complete (or at least try to complete) the assignment without ever looking at the accompanying lesson page.

HI @FosterTheMusic

I've opened your idea for conversation, as you can't currently add entire modules to the calendar. However, you may also consider adding requirements to your modules. Students won't be able to access assignments unless they've completed the preceding lesson/activity. 

Hopefully this helps!

That's very helpful, and I will look into that further.  Thank you! 

I guess part of the concern right now, though, is that students and parents really want to have a one-stop place where they can see what they still need to do, since at the moment, they have 7+ courses to try to juggle.  The calendar seems like the most logical place for that to happen, but it's not as easy to access the actual lessons from that spot, as only the assignments show up.

You can now add to-do dates to the pages within your modules, so it is possible to use the first page of the module to put the start of the module on the calendar, and even to add dates to multiple pages to pace student completion of the module. 

There is a check box below the page content labeled "add to student to-do."  When checked you will see a date entry box.

Sometimes I miss tasks because its a bit of a hassle to enter canvas each time you just whant to see if your teacher posted something that we need to read to next time. I would like this to show up in Calender as well. Right now just the course and how many credits shows up. It would be nice if links ( if the class is on zoom) would show there or if there is additional reading that we need to do to that day. I don't want to go to different moduls each time..This is very confusing. Please make this work with Calender.. I mean If it says " Read article" or something then I can go to the module and download the task. But its would make my life so much better just to see what need to be done in the schedule.
