So you’re a student at the University of Copenhagen, and you’re starting on a new course. Wouldn’t it be lovely if you could add your schedule to your calendar, so that you could keep track of when to be where?
Well, Rasmus Wriedt Larsen has devised a website, KU Calendar Helper, which automatically produces an ICAL feed you can add to your Google Calendar or similar. You can simply input the URL to the course schedule, and it’ll do the boring work for you.
To simplify this process, I created the following userscript:
To use this script, follow these simple steps:
- Go to the SIS-page of the course you want a calendar feed for.
- Click “Vis skema for kurset”
- On the top of the page that comes up, click “Export to calendar”
- Follow the instructions on the page that comes up
If you’re a student at the University of Copenhagen, you’ll probably have noticed that we recently switched to new, horrendously hard to remember usernames for logging into punkt.KU (affectionately known as license plates).
In order to better cope with change, I present to you a few tools to help make the transition smoother.
If you are a student at the University of Copenhagen, chances are that you’ve had a run-in with a service called Absalon. For the uninitiated, Absalon is based on a system called it’s learning, which is a “virtual learning environment“. As a student at KU might also know ISIS, which serves pretty much the exact same purpose.
