“I can share calendar data across platforms.” Anon, USA

“Because I use Google to organize my days with meetings and tasks, it works for me to plan my personal learning into Google. I have a different blog on my calendar at the end of each work day, on a two-week rotation. I also use it to schedule time to pursue other learning goals and projects.” L&D Specialist, USA, 2016

“a fantastic time-management tool and it’s available everywhere” Bill Miller

“is the tool I used for my personal calendar. I can access my calendar wherever I am and many applications, such as the Mozilla Calendar extension, even allow to integrate your Google Calendar into other tools” Guy Boulet

“where would I be without Google Calendar and it’s mobile alerts?” Nick Hood

“One of the main reasons I like Google Calendar is that it was easy to embed into my website. I put all the student assignments and other events on the calendar. Color coding allows a quick visual cue so that students (and parents) can easily distinguish scheduled quizzes and tests, daily assignments, and other events. ” Don Simmons

“Managing a number of calendars in one without sharing was a pain before Google Calendars. Now I can share parts of a calendar with some, keep some private and we can all be on the same page.” Kevin Jones
