Google Calendar

It's here!! One of the most requested features, Google Calendar integration!!


Straight from the mouth of Google, September 23:


Hi Classroom users,


Today, we’re excited to announce one of the most requested features for Google Classroom has launched! Teachers and students can now keep track of all their work for their classes with a synced Calendar! To access your Calendar, there are links on the About page. If you do not see the links immediately, you should not fret as this feature will roll-out throughout the day. Please be patient as you will have access very soon.


For users that open Google Calendar directly and see links on their About page. but do not see a calendar for your class, you will need to generate it yourself. To generate a Calendar, you can follow one of the two options:

  1. Once in a class, go to the About Page for a class and click 'Open in Google Calendar'.
  2. On the Stream, create a new Stream item and the calendar will be created.


Best,


The Google Classroom Team

Did You Know?

  • You will receive email notifications if you are invited to join a class, or when something new is posted? Make sure students keep this setting turned ON!
  • If a student is having trouble turning in assignments to Classroom, they most likely DELETED their Classroom folder from Drive! Yikes! But we can fix that: https://tackk.com/turninfix
