synchronization capabilities and that this feature was planned for
dotLRN as well. Is it working now? If not, what are the plans for it?
If so, then how do users access this functionality?
Doing a complete job requires that the calendar package become timezone-aware. Neither the 4.x Calendar and ACES Calendar packages are timezone-aware and the lack of this information is what led to the rather ugly Outlook-dependent hacks on the iCalendar output mentioned above.
I'm not sure where dotLRN is on this ... slipping in a hack similar to what I did for SloanSpace would be easy, adding full support easy once timezone-awareness is implemented in the calendar package would be easy, but impossible before.
Can you please clarify what exactly your students are going to be working on.
Are they planning to make the calendar timezone-aware or are they going to
add more hacks to support the iCalendar standard?
He was not going to work on the timezone awareness.
Another one of my students (Andrew Zeon) is beginning to work in an alert system (SMS and email)
