In yesterday’s list of ten tools to help students keep track of tasks I included using Google Calendar events with reminders to keep track of long-term projects. A few people have emailed me asking how to create reminders in Google Calendar so I put together the following set of directions. (Click the images to view them in full size).
Step 1: Create your event and click “edit event.”
Step 2: Scroll down to the “reminders” setting and choose the type of reminder that you want to receive.
Step 3: Add more reminders by clicking on “Add a reminder.”
Step 4: After adding your reminders, click “save” at the top of screen.
Step 5: You can sync your Google Calendar to your mobile device. Directions are available here iOS and Android devices.
