Staff can also upload course and group events, such as for field trips and presentations. Each user will see a combined view of all their calendar entries within their My Home page. This shows all the events across all the Moodle courses a user is enrolled on. Lectures and tutorials can either be added manually to the Moodle calendar, or imported via the UCL Common Timetable ical feed.
