Updated over a week ago

Viewing your class schedule

After purchasing classes, you can view your upcoming schedule here. The Schedule tab will show all of your upcoming classes. Clicking on any class title will bring you to the “For Parents” tab of that class, where you can make changes to your enrollment. Clicking on the “Classroom” tab will show you the teacher’s introduction post, where your learner can also introduce themself to their classmates.

Syncing Your Calendar

We often hear that parents and teachers want to easily see how their Outschool classes fit into their calendars. We can help with that!

Almost all calendar apps support calendar subscriptions as a way to solve a common problem: for example, to let parents subscribe to a soccer team's game schedule, and have it easily show up in their calendar.

As an Outschool user, you can subscribe to three different personal calendar feeds:

  • Classes you are enrolled in

  • Classes saved in your Favorites

  • Classes you are teaching

Once you've subscribed, all the new classes you enroll in will automatically show up your calendar - it's almost like magic. Most calendar apps will let you control how often the feed will update from Outschool - for example, once an hour, or once a day.


If you use the calendar app that is built in to your iPhone, Android phone, or computer, all you have to do is click the 'Subscribe' button. You'll see this button on your list of enrolled classes, your favorites list, and your teaching schedule.


Subscribing with Google Calendar

If you use Google Calendar, it's easy to add your Outschool schedules to your account. First, copy the URL we provide:

​​Then add it to Google Cal. Click the down arrow next to 'Other Calendars', then choose 'From URL' and paste the URL we provided. The Google Calendar feed will automatically update from Outschool at least once per day. We are not able to increase the frequency of the updates - this is a limitation within Google Calendar.

Unsubscribing with Google Calendar

If you no longer wish to see your Outschool classes on your Google Calendar, you can remove the Outschool calendar by visiting Google Calendar's settings page and clicking the "unsubscribe" button at the bottom of the section devoted to your Outschool calendar.

Subscribing with Apple’s iCalendar from the Mac laptop

If you are using a Mac, you can add your Outschool schedule to Apple’s iCalendar tool. Please follow the instructions provided by Apple Support. For the “calendar’s web address”, use the Subscribe link from the Calendar dialogue box.
