Automatically Add Calendar Events

I own a music lessons company and we have about 15 teachers that work with us and I want to make an app that helps teachers and students manage their lessons. One feature that I can't quite figure out yet is how to automatically add events to Google calendar. Can anyone help with that? I saw a similar question on here. https://teamtreehouse.com/forum/need-help-with-an-android-project But I don't think I'm advanced enough with Android to understand what it means.

Your best bet to get started is to do it via Intents. Check out this simple tutorial and see if it helps with what you want to do: http://www.vogella.com/tutorials/AndroidCalendar/article.html

If you want to do more in the app itself, you'll need to access the Calendar Provider, which is a bit more complex: http://developer.android.com/guide/topics/providers/calendar-provider.html
