ELT Calendar Content Distribution

This page gives you an overview of the various ways that ELT Calendar distributes event information. Some of these are ways that you can subscribe to information, so that you can stay up to date without having to visit the site daily. Others are ways that you can distribute ELT Calendar information from your newsletter, blog, or website.

Add A Single Event to Your Calendar

This page is about subscribing to a steady stream of event information, but if you want to add only one event to your calendar, you can.

  1. Go to the full description page for the event.
  2. Scroll down a bit. Just above the "Contact" section, you'll see a row of buttons like these:
    don't click here, it's just an image
  3. Click the most relevant button, and you're done! (If your calendar isn't listed, try the iCal link first.)
