How do I navigate the Syllabus table and calendar?

Canvas recently introduced a new page design called the New Canvas User Interface (UI). Depending on your Canvas view, your page design may vary from the images shown in this lesson. However, the functionality and location of the components remain the same.

The Syllabus table and calendar are automatically populated by assignments and events in the course.
