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 with an orange X over them 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.
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.

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 to place assignments around the newly added course holidays.
Click on the holiday in the calendar you want to remove
The orange X will be removed after the click.
Note: Removing course holidays will not automatically adjust the due dates of previously assigned assignments. You will need to run the Schedule Generator to reassign assignments.
