    • Hi Sue, I haven’t tried embedding it into Blackboard before, but you should be able to use an iFrame code.

      If you create an item or blank page, navigate to the HTML button in the text editor and paste the code below. You’ll just need to paste the Google Calendar Appointments URL in the space provided. You can also adjust the height and width to your liking.

      “< " iframe src="PASTE THE GOOGLE CALENDAR LINK HERE" width="100%" height"500px">”

      (Remove the quotation marks before and after the first and last greater/less than signs. WordPress wouldn’t display just the code, it was attempting to add an iframe.)
