Google Calendar: Import Class Schedule
Google Calendar allows you to import existing calendars available elsewhere into your Google Calendar. One such calendar is your class schedule, available through CedarInfo. Before you import your class schedule by following the instructions below, please read the following note.
Before you begin this process, you may want to create a new calendar in your Google Calendar in which to place your class schedule. This way, you will be able to choose at any point in time whether you want to view your class schedule on your main Google Calendar. To create a new calendar, please see Google Calendar: Create New Calendars.
