F.e. Google Calendar is a time-management and scheduling calendar service developed by Google. It became available in 2006 and it is available on the web and as mobile apps for the Android and iOS mobile operating systems. Google Calendar allows users to create and edit events. Reminders can be enabled for events, with options available for type and time. Event locations can also be added, and other users can be invited to events. Users can enable or disable the visibility of special calendars, including Birthdays, where the app retrieves dates of births from Google contacts and displays birthday cards on a yearly basis, and Holidays, a country-specific calendar that displays dates of special occasions.

F.e. Yahoo Calendar is a Web-based calendar service from Yahoo!. It can read calendar feeds and events syndicated from sites that make use of the published Yahoo calendar programming interfaces. While users are not required to have a Yahoo Mail account, they are required to have a Yahoo ID in order to use the software.

Why is it useful for VET?
It is useful to coordinate and plan activities within participants to an activity or project. Because they are connected to the main free email account providers (Gmail, Yahoo), it is a perfect way to synchronise the agendas within participants e.g. to a project in a class.

How to?
1. Access Google Calendar. Open a new web browser tab or window and go to Gmail. Provide your Gmail email address and password in the fields given. If you do not have a Gmail account, create one easily by hitting the “Create an Account” link below the login window.

  • Click on the apps icon (bold dots in 3 rows and 3 columns, forming a square) at the top right of the page.
  • A pop-up will appear showing a number of Google applications, including Google+, Google Drive, Maps, News, YouTube, and Calendar. Click “Calendar” to go to the Google Calendar application

2. Create an event. To begin creating an event, click the “Create New” button. It’s the red button found on the left side of the page. You will be directed to a page requesting you to input the details of the event.

  • Provide the name of the event in the first field. Just tap the “untitled event” words in the field and type in the name.
  • Below the title field, you will see the start date and time as well as the end date and time of the event. Pick the dates and times of the event in these fields.
  • In the “Where” field below date and time, enter the location where the event will take place.
  • Add a little something about the event in the Description field if desired.
  • If you want Google Calendar to email you a reminder (like letting you know one day before the event), set notification information in the Notification option. Under this option are 3 boxes. These boxes have drop-down menus. In the first box, select the way you want to be notified (e.g., mail or a pop-up window that appears when your computer is on and is connected to the Internet). The second and third box also contains a drop-down menu for selecting minutes, hours, days or weeks to set a specific date and time for the notification.
  • You can also choose to invite friends to the event by typing their email addresses on the “Add Guest” field. If you choose to invite friends, you have to specify their user rights. For example, they can invite other friends, view other invited friends, or modify the event.
  • Click the “Save” button to complete the process of creating the event. The “Save” button can be found at the end of the Create Event form. Next to this button is “Discard.” If you want to cancel the event creation, click this instead.

3. View events. All created events can be viewed in the Agenda tab at the top right of the Calendar page.
