Create/edit/share calendars/schedules

Technologies:

There are many tools out there for creating schedules and calendars.  We recommend calendar tools that can be accessed via the web, particularly if you want to share calendar information.  Microsoft Outlook is useful for your personal calendar and scheduling needs and can be shared with other over the web.  If you have a Google account, you can use the calendar that is included with Gmail.  There has been a certain amount of standardization of these technologies so that it is possible to exchange event information across calendaring systems.
