Higher Education Academy / JISC Combined Events Calendar

This is another small project I’m running, an attempt to pull together all learning and teaching events across the subject community in the UK:

What’s a little unfortunate about this project was it only really got into second gear – its ended up being a good “proof of concept” rather than a solution.  Some more funding and time and I could have really got it going. A project like this also requires a “nightwatchman” to make sure new feeds that spring up get checked and included as appropriate.

Rosy Future.

I must say though that iCAL is an excellent easy to work with event details format a great piece of pragmatic design which has established a deserved position as the way to share events information between machines – RSS is good at this also but was always intended for humans to use ultimately – this is a machine to machine language and it does what it does very well.

Get Involved:

I created a tool kit document to help interested parties to develop iCAL as part of their business functioning – from very technical to dead simple solutions. I hope not a stuffy document, written in an informal style.
