Choosing View in Classroom will display a calendar within Google Classroom that displays any announcements, assignments or discussions that have been posted.

Choosing Open in Google Calendar will open up your Google Calendar which will now have a new calendar added. This calendar will have the same name as the title of your Google Classroom.

If the box in your About tab looks says No Google Calendar created, it simply means that you have not yet posted in your Google Classroom.

Once you post your first assignment, announcement or discussion, a Google Calendar created specifically for your class will be generated.

Sharing Your Calendar

Once you begin adding items to the calendar, you will likely want to share it outside of Google Classroom so that the parents of your students will be able to see due dates.

In order to do this, open your calendar and click the gear symbol in the upper right corner. Then click on settings
