We made several updates to the Course Catalog service. It now supports courses that occur in just part of a term and have customized start/end dates, like PE classes and some off-campus programs. Additionally, we’ve updated the font used to render schedules. Course codes can now include lower-case letters and we’ve added a robots.txt file to the service making it easier for search engines to crawl.
The Appointments+ plugin for WordPress is a significant upgrade from the version we had been running (1.4.4). If you had tried this plugin before and it didn’t meet your needs, the new version may be worth a second look.
