This year the university is making available an electronic version of the timetable for all staff and students. It is best described as “a work in progress” because that is what it is. Lots of wonderful things are promised for the future, including Outlook integration and proper, personalised timetables. But for now it is a bit unwieldy to use.
Which is not good enough for Tom, one of our students, who has built a Python program that reads the data and then lets you display your timetable and do all the things that you’d really want to do with it. You can find out about it here.
Incidentally, I found his blog post via http://hullcompsciblogs.com/
This has a bunch of good student blogs, and if you are from Hull and starting blogging you can ask them to add yours to the syndication.
