Your eClass calendar can be found under “Site pages” in the Navigation block on your eClass homepage. This article will demonstrate how you can export your eClass calendar to a different calendar tool (eg. google calendar.) It is still recommended to check eClass often to ensure you are meeting deadlines.
The calendar can also be accessed as a block in the right-hand column. You can add it to your eClass Course Overview page and many instructors add it directly into their course pages. The calendar contains the due dates and times for any activities assigned to you in your eClass courses.
The following article can be referenced for adding the calendar block to your course page (instructors) or to your course overview page: https://support.ctl.ualberta.ca/index.php?/Knowledgebase/Article/View/19/13/using-the-eclass-calendar
Exporting Your Calendar
Click the “Export calendar” button. Select the time period you desire and whether or not to include non-course related events. Click “Export” to download your calendar or select “Get calendar URL” to get a URL that you can share with others so that they can download your eClass calendar.
Single Course Calendar Export
Unfortunately, exporting the calendar for a single course is not a feature that is currently available in eClass. In some applications such as Microsoft Outlook, the exported calendar can be filtered by category to see individual classes but a more reliable method to view a single course's calendar is on its eClass page (see issues with eClass calendar export below).
Although the calendar inside of eClass provides detailed month views for individual courses, exporting the calendar while viewing a single course’s calendar will still export your entire calendar for all courses.
