Event Pages

All events scheduled into Elentra can have information about them recorded. This can include date and time, location, audience, faculty, attendance, objectives, resources, etc.

Curriculum coordinators and program coordinators can access and edit the content of learning events for their affiliated courses. Faculty assigned to a course as its director can also access and edit the content of learning events in their course. Faculty > Lecturers can only edit the content of learning events for which they are listed as teachers.

You can watch a recording about scheduling tools in Elentra at collaborate.elentra.org (login required).
