We are just implementing Learn and are struggling with the institution calendar. It does not allow all-day events or events that span several days like "Thanksgiving Vacation". Are there users who have used an alternative tool for an overall calendar within the Bb site. I thought about GoogleApps calendar and Bboogle but it appears to only allow you to use the Apps within a course or organization, not on the "My Institution" page. Has anyone ever put a Microsoft Exchange calendar in a Bb site?
Any suggestions would be welcome.
If you have community system, I don't think there's any reason you couldn't create an HTML module to embed a Google calendar using instructions at http://support.google.com/calendar/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=41207 and put it on the My Institution tab. I'm fairly sure there are similar methods for sharing an Exchange calendar on a website, as well.
I tried it and it works well. Thank you.
What I would like to do now is put a module on the My Institution tab with two links...one to the Google calendar module that I built and one to the traditional Bb calendar. I think I can figure out the latter, but I'm not seeing what the hyperlink should look like if you want to open up one module (in a new window) from within another module. I think I can do it if I put the calendar module on a tab, but I'd like to just go straight to the Google calendar module (module id _221_1). Is that possible?
I'm not sure if all modules can be detached and opened in their own windows, but it looks like the ones that can have a URL like:
a onclick="window.open('http://www.google.com/calendar/embed?height=600&wkst=1&bgcolor=%23FFFFFF&src=aquinas-sta.org_7n4tv79di3pdq0skvmh4895qks%40group.calendar.google.com&color=blue&ctz=America%2FNew_York','popup','width=1000,height=800,scrollbars=yes,resizable=no,addressbar=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=200px,top=30px'); return false"
Seems to work okay.
Thanks again for your support.
Yes, that's even simpler!
