Use the calendars as a teacher

This article is for teachers. Students go here.

For each class, you and your students share a Classroom calendar and a calendar in Google Calendar. If you don't see any calendars for your classes, your administrator probably turned off Calendar for your account.

What can I do with each calendar?
