Warning! You will need the administrator role. Only administrators can create and edit events. Instructors with the needed rights can view them and possibly assess them.
Creating an event
Go to the Events tab and click + Event to create a new event. Fill in a description, date, time and location on the page.
You can fill in a minimum and maximum amount of participants. Minimum is the minimum amount of enrolments needed to have the event proceed. The learner can see if there enough enrolments.
At maximum you can set the maximum amount of participants. Once this limit has been reached, enrolment will be closed.
At the top of the page, you can edit the Event status. By default this is set to Unconfirmed. You can set this to Confirmed to indicate if the event will happen. You can also set it to Cancelled if you want to cancel the event. Learners will receive a notification via email when this status changes.
The Enrolment is set to Open by default. If you set this to Closed, learners can't enrol anymore.
Under the tab Content libraries you can link a content library to this event. This has to do with rights and does not mean that the event will be in that content library. It means that designers with designer rights for a linked content library can add an activity that will link directly to the event in a course.
Under the Instructors tab you can link instructors to the event. They can view the event and see which learners have enrolled. If something is set up under Assessment (see below), an instructor can assess this.
Under the Assessment tab you can set up if the event can be assessed. This is turned off by default (No assessment). Once an instructor has assessed the event, the learner will receive a notification.
