Blackboard Calendar events can be synchronized with third-party calendars such as Outlook and Google via an iCalendar (iCal) feed. Once the iCal feed is set up on a third-party calendar, updates to events are automatically reflected on the third-party calendar. Please note that it may take up to 24 hours to sync the calendars.
