How can I set holidays?
As the fourth step in the Course Wizard, the Set Holidays page allows you to mark days in your course that you want to exclude regular lectures from occurring on during the schedule generation process (called "course holidays"). These could be holidays, exam days, etc.
Days that have been marked as course holidays will appear as an orange X in the calendar displayed on this page, as well as on the instructor's main course calendar page. The students' calendar view will not display the Xs on their main calendar page.
Follow the instructions below to add course holidays.
HOW TO SET HOLIDAYS
Click "Set Holidays" from the Instructor Links drop down menu
You can also navigate to the Set Holidays section of the Course Wizard by clicking "next' from "Select Course Content"
Click on the days in the calendar you want to set as a holiday
An orange X will appear on days that have been clicked.
Note: Adding course holidays will not automatically adjust the due dates of previously assigned assignments. You will need to run the schedule generator (see How do I use the Schedule Generator to create a schedule for the semester?) in order to place assignments around the newly added course holidays.
HOW TO REMOVE COURSE HOLIDAYS
Click on the holiday in the calendar you want to remove.
The orange X will be removed after the click.
