Exporting Moodle Calendars to Your Personal Calendar

The Moodle calendar contains all date-specific content from your current courses, including course assignments, forums, and activities. The calendar block can be found at the top left of the Moodle My Home page. To see your full calendar, click on the bar that displays the month. This is what will appear on the next page:
While the calendar feature in Moodle is helpful, you may find it preferable to export your calendar to your personal calendar (whether iCal, Google Calendar, etc.). Here is how to perform that export:

Step 1: From the calendar page in Moodle, click Export Calendar.
Step 2: On the next page, make your selections regarding the Events to Export (recommended: all events), the Time period you want exported, and whether you want to Get a calendar URL or Export a file.

Step 3: Use the generated URL or file to add your Moodle calendar to your personal calendar. NOTE: Different calendars have different processes regarding the steps necessary for a calendar import. Be sure to research these steps, and whether your personal calendar requires a URL or calendar file, before you embark on the export/import process.
