Managing Your Time: Online Calendars

Tired of flipping through the pages of a paper planner?  Although paper planners are a valuable tool to organize your appointments, assignments, and life, if you prefer technology, you may want to consider using an online calendar.  If you are struggling with time management or organizing appointments, assignments, quizzes and tests, you may find that an online calendar is just what you need to get organized and stay ahead of course due dates!
