How do I edit an event or assignment in the Calendar?

You can change the date of an Event or Assignment by clicking on the Event or Assignment or by dragging and dropping the Event or Assignment to a different date. This lesson shows how to edit a calendar item, but you can also delete items from the Calendar.
