Add (embed) a Google calendar to your website + How to add a calendar from the outside to your site

If you would like to add a Google Calendar to your website (in this example I used both Blackboard and Google Sites) simply follow these instructions.

  • Open your Google Calendar
  • Top right select Settings
  • On the left side of screen, select the name of the calendar you want to embed 
  • Look for Integrate calendar on left side
  • You will then see options on how to integrate (in this example we are just embedding directly into your website
  • Select customize and then copy the code
  • Enter into your website and look for the source code icon - look like this < >
    • then paste in the code - select ok and then save
    • on a Google Site simply select an open area (double click) and select embed - then paste code and publish
If you want to add a calendar from the outside to your calendar there are different options. In this example the school district where I work has embedded their calendar so I need to simply...

  • select the Ical feed instructions (upper right above the calendar)
  • choose - Android Devices and Google Calendar
  • copy link
  • go back to Google Calendar
  • select the + next to other calendars (bottom left under your other calendars
  • select from URL
  • paste in the iCal code
  • the calendar has been added
Embedded below is a 2 minute and 58 second YouTube tutorial showing how to do the above steps

Take care,
