    was able to update the events from 2017 to 2018 however at the bottom of my syllabus, it still includes the activities of 2017 along with the 2018 updates

      Jim,
      It looks like the items listed in the Course Summary are Calendar entries. You can modify these by clicking each one to modify (or delete) an event in the Calendar.

      Hope this helps!
