Moodle Calendar will be automatically populated with assignment due dates from each of the courses in which you are enrolled. Faculty can also add events to the Moodle calendar directly for any of their courses.

From the Moodle home page, your calendar will show you all information from all courses. Moodle does not support subscribing to specific course calendars.

Moodle Calendar is visible either in the Upcoming Events block or the Calendar blocks on any course sites that use them.
