All users have their own personal calendars. Personal calendar shows only the events from course workspaces the user is a member of. 

The calendar may contain events created by Oodi, due dates created by activity, and events created by teacher him/herself. If Oodi has events that has registration and has timetable information these timetable events are shown only for those students who has registered in this events (for example lecture group 1). If course has event in Oodi that has no registration but has timetable information the timetable information is shown to all course students.

Please note that it is not recommended to add attachments to calendar events, since they cannot be imported to the next year's course calendar. If you follow the the instructions on Material delivery, next year you can import your current workspace materials and other Sections into the empty workspace. 

Oodi-based events

The course calendar contains room and time information on lectures and exercises automatically driven from Oodi.

Oodi-based information (event title, date and time) will be overwritten nightly, but you may add information on the description field. This field is not overwritten.



If you need to delete a calendar event that was created automatically from Oodi, you need to delete it only from Oodi. Event will be removed from MyCourses next night.

Activity-based events

The course workspace activities' deadlines (due date) will be added to the course calendar automatically.

Events created by teacher

Teachers can create new calendar events. 

The calendar can be synced with Aalto University Exchange calendar (Outlook Web Access) or other calendar systems which support iCal-format, such as Google Calendar.
