 3. On the far right side of the page, you will see the calendars for the upcoming months that are color-coded based on the event type. Events added to your calendar can be for individual users (only the user who adds it can see it), for courses (everyone in the course can see it), or global events (everyone on the site will be able to see it). If there is an event set for a certain day, that day will be shaded in the color set for that event type.
