I believe the calorimeters discussed in the class were both made of materials/in such a way that the heat could not be transferred to the calorimeter itself making it have no effect on the change in temperature.
If you were doing a calorimeter experiment in a lab, then you would have to account for the heat absorbed by the calorimeter itself and the surroundings. For the purposes of this class, however, I believe you can consider this fact to be negligible when doing homework problems and calculations.
