There are certainly many options for calendars, some being desktop (iCal, Outlook, etc.) and others living in the cloud (Google Calendar, etc.) I will highlight some of the major players here, but all should be similar to set up.

  • Login to your account. Click on the top ribbon and select “calendar”
  • Click on the “Import” button then select “Subscribe” in the left column. In the Calendar URL field, paste the link to the calendar to which you wish to subscribe. Now give the calendar a name and click the “Subscribe” button.[Premium Content - Login] [Membership Options]
  • You will now see a dialog box that gives you options for the calendar. You may change these options if you like and press the “Ok” button. You will now see the course calendar in iCal.  You should change the Auto-Refresh field to be more frequent than the default "Every Week" based on how often you change your calendar.
