How to Use Google Calendar as a Class Website (Part 2 of 6)

In the second part of this six-part Google Calendar series, we will explore:

  • how to share the public calendar link with students.

Watch the following two (2) minute video or see the screenshots below to get started:

Step 1 – Access the Calendar Settings of the Calendar You Want Public

Step 3 – Copy Public Calendar Link to Share With Students and Parents

Select the Calendar Details option from the horizontal menu at the top of the page. Scroll down and click the HTML button in the Calendar Address section. Copy and paste the link that appears in the pop-up box and share with students and parents.

Under Calendar Details, Copy the HTML Calendar Address

Step 4 – Test the Link in a Web Browser

Paste the link in a web browser to check that the public calendar is working. Note that if you do not have any events created for the calendar, it should appear to be blank.

Also note that if you have more than one calendar, it is common for people to add events to the wrong calendar and thus your public calendar to appear blank. Be sure you add events to the correct calendar.
