Comments on Google Calendar 

“The best way to organize my live and my work.” Eva Añón, Social Media Manager, Spain, 2021

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

“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

Here you will find some basic guidance and links to resources on how to use Google Calendar for teaching, training, learning and development.

Google Calendar is an important personal productivity tool to organise one’s day’s activities.  But there are a number of interesting things you can do with it, like

  • share the link with others (family, friends, colleagues, etc) so they can see your availability (for meetings and other activities)
  • embed it into a blog or website to highlight key dates, events etc for others to see
  • create a collaborative diary where other people can add to it – this might be useful to co-curate useful external events
