Team are investigating developing personal timetabling apps/widgets. however there are some issues with lack of ical feeds facility in Live@Edu. The team maybe able to provide feeds for assessment hand in dates before complete personalized timetabling.

Using commercial provider (Ombiel) to build mobile apps. Initial iphone app release scheduled for end of September 2010, Blackberry and android versions will be ready early 2011. Will use these initial apps as part of requirements gathering for development of future widgets/apps. Project hoping that this will allow more focused user requirements.
