How to Use Google Calendar as a Class Website (Part 6 of 6)
In the sixth and final part of the Public Google Calendar series, we will explore:
- How to add a link to a calendar event using HTML Code (as we did here),
- how to copy the public/shared Dropbox file link, and
- how to paste the public/shared Dropbox file link into your Google Calendar HTML Anchor Code.
Watch the following short video or see the screenshots below to get started:
Step 1 – Add the HTML Code Anchor Tag to a Calendar Entry
Simply copy and paste this code into your calendar:
<a href=”http://www.dropboxfile.com”>Download Dropbox File Here</a>
Note that you want to replace http://www.dropboxfile.com with the link to the public Dropbox file you wish to share with your students.
Step 2 – Copy Public/Shared Link of the Dropbox File You Wish to Share
Go to any Dropbox file you wish to share in your calendar. Right-click on the file and select Share Dropbox Link to copy the link to your clipboard.
Step 3 – Paste Dropbox File Public/Shared Link into Google Calendar Entry
Replace the link portion of the HTML Anchor Tag that you had used in Step #1 with the Public/Shared Link of the Dropbox File.
