The rotating block schedule is great for student learning, but as a teacher it can be difficult to keep track of what day in the cycle it is. Fortunately, you can add the rotation schedule to your Outlook calendar so you can easily see what day it is! Here’s how:

First, open the calendar page from Dragon’s Gate and select the iCal feed from the right sidebar.

Add Calendar 1

In the window that pops up, choose the iCal feed of the calendar you wish to sync. Click the “Add to Default Calendar App” option.

Add Calendar 2

Here’s where things can get a bit tricky. A new window should pop up (you might need to authorize it) for Calendar. Copy the link that shows up (it begins with webcal://) and then click “Cancel” for that window.

Add Calendar 3

Switch over to your Outlook Calendar and select “Add calendar -> From Internet”.

Add Calendar 4

Paste the link you copied from above (⌘+ V) into the window that pops up and give your calendar a name.

Add Calendar 5

Your new calendar should now appear and you’ll never lose track of the days again!

Add Calendar 6

Special thanks to Ms. Yamatin who showed me how to do this!
