使用Google Calendar订阅UC Berkeley讲座信息

UC Berkeley使用Cal Events Calendar对学校的讲座/展览/演出等进行统一管理。一年前,当我刚得知这个网站并注意到它提供RSS订阅的时候,我自然就想到能否使用Google Calendar订阅其列出的seminars。管理员相当nice的和我研究探讨(同时感谢Wang Junyu的慷慨援助!),终于协力解决了与Google Calendar的兼容性问题。

使用一年后,我感觉仍然错过很多精彩Seminars,同时被很多不感兴趣的seminars spammed……继续琢磨,终于明白了其分类导出events的机理!现在我的Calendar上包括如下Seminars,大大提高了我安排schedule时的效率:

Biochemistry & Molecular Biology Seminars
Bioengineering Seminars
Computational Biology Seminars
Genetics, Genomics & Development Seminars
Structural & Quantitative Biology Seminars

那么,如何寻找并添加你感兴趣的Seminars并加入Google Calendar?比如:Biochemistry & Molecular Biology Seminars的添加地址是:
http://events.berkeley.edu/index.php/ical/sn/mcb/type/future.html?filter=Secondary%20Event%20Type&filtersel=1193

1. 确定发布events的院系/机构(mcb),进入其event page。你可以在这里找到学校所有的events发布单位各自的calendar。
http://events.berkeley.edu/index.php/calendar/sn/mcb.html

2. 进入后在Seminar series(或Envent types)的下拉菜单中选择Division of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology→Go

3. 待页面刷新后,用鼠标右键点击页面左侧任意一个RSS图标,选择“Copy link location"(firefox) 或者 "copy shortcut"(IE)。比如,你点击的是”This month's events"右边的RSS图标,这时候你复制的地址(你可以粘贴到记事本中查看)应为:
http://events.berkeley.edu/index.php/rss/sn/mcb/type/month.html?filter=Secondary%20Event%20Type&filtersel=1193

4. 修改上述红色部分的参数为
http://events.berkeley.edu/index.php/ical/sn/mcb/type/future.html?filter=Secondary%20Event%20Type&filtersel=1193

5. 导入Google Caldendar
settings→ Calendar → Browse interesting calendars → Add by URL→加入上述URL。之后,你可以在Google Calendar中修改这个导入的Calendar的名字(默认为URL本身,很丑……),比如"Biochemistry & Molecular Biology Seminars"。

6. 从此你将不会错过任何被MCB department归类为Biochemistry & Molecular Biology的Seminars了!

PS1:对于本文开头给出的seminars地址,可以直接复制其链接后从Step 5继续。

PS2:Cal Academic Calendar(学校假期等,至2013年)
http://opa.berkeley.edu/AcademicCalendar/ (打开后下载ics格式文件导入Google Calendar)

PS3:如果你很有钻研精神,想弄清楚Events Calendar URL里各参数是什么意思,可以查阅官方帮助how to set the event filters
