Canvas calendar

The calendar is a great way to view everything you have to do for all your courses in one place while you're studying at AUT. Calendars in Canvas can be turned on or off for both your personal and course calendars.

The following video provides an overview of how to use the Canvas calendar to keep up with important course-related dates and events at AUT.

Viewing the calendar list

The calendar list includes a coloured box next to each course and one for your personal calendar. Your personal calendar is labelled with your name.

If the coloured box is a solid colour, the calendar is turned on. When a calendar is on 'Events', assignments and to-do items for that course are shown in the calendar. When the coloured box is empty, events, assignments and to-do items for that course are shown in the calendar.
