Google Calendar is a great tool for helping faculty and students stay organized. More powerful and flexible than your Groupwise or Blackboard calendar tool, calendars created with Google’s tools are meant for collaboration and communication. What sets Google Calendars apart from other planning and scheduling tools is its ease of use, its integration with other Google productivity tools, and that it can be accessed on just about any computer or mobile device.
