Use coursecode.yorku.ca to manually look up the full 48-character course code of any course.

iCal feed of a course schedule

When you have the full course code, use the service at http://fides.ccs.yorku.ca/courseicals/ to get an iCal feed of the course's schedule. They are broken down there by year, faculty, and course.

Format: http://fides.ccs.yorku.ca/courseicals/ + YYYY_FA_PROG + / + FULL_COURSE_CODE

Example: A full course code is 2012_AP_HIST_Y_1010__6_A_EN_A_LECT_01

Pick out the first part to get the year, faculty and program: 2012_AP_HIST. Then build the URL:
