I would like to link a calendar event from within a module similar to how a page is linked. When the link is clicked it would open up to the student calendar which would give them details about the event.
Hi Steven Williamson,
If I understand your question correctly, you want to set up an Event in a course and add the link to it in the module, right?
Ok, so here's what I did:
Here's what it looks like from student view, the course menu is duplicated but the event details all display.
So I added "?embedded=true" to the end of the URL and got rid of the course navigation menu, but the display is a little cropped.
So up to you how you want it to display, but yes, you can add a Calendar event to the Module using the External Link option.
Cheers - Shar
What a smart solution! But is this really the only way to put Events into a module? It's actually quite disappointing that Canvas can't accomplish such a simple thing.
Could someone from Canvas state whether/when the cropped display problem will be fixed? Or perhaps there is some code we can add to increase the padding/margin of the embedded frame?
Thank you so much for this Shar!
