  8. A pop-up window will appear. In this pop-up window students have the ability to select which courses they’d like to sync calendars for:
    1. You can select each course, one by one – though if you choose this method you’d need to go through this process for each and every course you’d like to sync your calendar for
    2. You can select the option for “all calendars and tasks” – this will sync all calendar info and tasks from any LEARN courses you are currently registered in.

  9. Copy the URL that is listed in the pop-up window. Click on close.

Importing LEARN Calendars into your Main Calendar

Once you’ve created a URL for your LEARN calendar(s), you can add those calendar(s) to your main/personal calendar. Exactly how to do this is going to differ depending on what platform you use as your main or personal calendar. For details on how to import external calendars into commonly used main/personal calendars, please visit the links below:

  • Google Calendar: Adding someone else’s Google calendar (expand the section on “add using a link”)
  • Apple Calendar: Set up multiple calendars on iPhone (scroll down to section on “subscribe to a calendar”)
NOTE: If new items are added to a LEARN calendar after you’ve already synced to your main calendar, there is a delay between the item being added to the LEARN calendar, and when it appears in the main calendar. Students are responsible for ensuring accuracy of important dates, or adding in any dates that might not already be reflected.
