I've tried to use this blocktype to share a Hotmail calendar - nothing happens.  No error message, just no calendar.  I've also followed the procedure outline above to share a Bing Map and, again, nothing happens.  We're on a hosted site so I cannot tell if the plugin has been installed properly.  Any ideas?

Hi Gregor,

Any progress on the plugin yet?  Would be happy to test with Windows Live.  My institution will be in the same position as Jeremy's - this would be a great addition to the Mahara toolkit.

Regards,

Rod

Hi Gregor, I'm also interested in using this plugin in my version of Mahara: I have 1.5.1. I would also be more than happy to help/assist with testing. Regards, Paul
