You can set up a calendar to share with your group, class, friends etc.

Below is an example of a Google Calendar.
This was done by setting up a Google Calendar (you need to sign up for a Google ID). If you are happy to share your calendar (as I have done here) select "Make this Calendar public" from the Settings menu.
Otherwise select the "Share only my free / busy information (hide details)". You can then add specific people to share with and give them certain rights.
See the instructions below for more details.



Screenshots to assist you insetting up your Google Calendar - also view the Help on the Google Calendar site.

open Google as usual. From the selection select more. A drop down list will appear beneath the more and you can select calendar.

When in Google Calendar click on the arrow next to the name of your calendar. It will open the window displaying the window shown below

choose share this calendar and set your options - Make this calendar public OR Share only my free/busy information.

Then select Calendar Details and copy the " Embed This Calendar" code provided and paste it into a WIDGET - I put it into Other HTML and it seems to work fine!
