I just received the email below from Google. I believe our Upcoming Course Items in the left sidebar of the class site relies on this XML feed.  So it will stop working soon before the Thanksgiving break.  As there is nothing I can do about it, do note that there is a full class calendar on one of the Tabbed pages.  You will have to use that instead.  It is a little less convenient.  I regret that but its the best we can do under the circumstances.

Important announcement about XML feeds in Google Calendar

Because of low usage, and in an effort to streamline our services, from 18 November 2015, XML feeds will no longer be available in Google Calendar. You're getting this message because you're currently viewing or sharing a link to one or more of your calendars using an XML feed.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused. Google Calendar will continue to support three ways of viewing your calendars in other applications or on websites. You can:
  • Access your calendar in other applications, such as Microsoft Outlook or Apple Calendar, using iCal.
  • Embed your calendar in your website or blog using HTML.
  • Use the Google Calendar API to display, create and modify calendar events if you're a developer.
Finally, you can always view and manage your calendars using the Google Calendar app for Android, iPhone or on the web.

  1. I started to play with this a little. The Upcoming Course Items may still work and the message may be about another site where I've used the XML feed. No way to really tell till we hit the day and see.
