Adding an event to the course agenda
Events can be added to the course Agenda in two ways. The simplest and quickest way is simply to click on the relevant date/day/time in the course Agenda (choose week or day view to select a specific time or timescale). You can select users who can see the event, add a title and a brief verbal description, and decide whether to also send the event as an announcement/email:

For a more fully configured event entry, however, click the Add event icon in the tool-bar. This will open a dialogue page allowing entry of a title and the selection of users, but also a richer description (e.g. using graphics), automatic repeat configuration (daily, weekly, monthly, yearly) and the option to add an attachment (to accompany email announcements).
