Bug Description

Lernid uses an ical feed to provide the schedule for its sessions.

It would be great if this URL was exposed somewhere in the user interface - so that the user could click a button to subscribe to the webcal (--> evolution-webcal would pop up to then have sessions added to a user's calendar / I could choose to take the URL and add it to Google Calendar). I don't necessarily want to have Lernid running to get a view of when there are sessions I might want to join.

Yes, this is definitely a good idea.

I also thought about being able to add single sessions to the Evolution calendar. I am often interested in specific sessions, so I would want to add those to my calendar and let Evolution remind me of them. I even started hacking on that, but it appears that Evolution’s python bindings are too incomplete to get this done straight away. So starting by exposing the complete iCal URL would definitely be welcome!

Yes, being able to "subscribe" to a specific event in order to have reminders set up in a calendar program would be very helpful.

The iCal is listed in the schedule section of the classroom wiki page. http://wiki.ubuntu.com/Classroom

Cool, hadn't spotted that it was listed on the wiki - it would also be nice to expose it to the user in the Lernid UI though.

Thank you very much for the bug report.

It would be handy for lernid to, at least, list the iCal URL.

It would also be quite easy to produce a tag that lists the ical subscription address.

See the main page if you'd like to learn or practice software maintenance using this bug and would like some help.
