There may be more than one calendar available from the Northern Lights College system e-catalog Gateway at a time. If there is more than one, you will see a dropdown box toward the top of the page with the name of the current calendar. Clicking the dropdown box provides access to other available calendars. Selecting an alternate calendar will load it into the Gateway. If you do not see the dropdown box, then only a single calendar is currently published.
You may add information from any of the available calendars to your own personal My NLC Calendar. See below to learn more about Using the My NLC Calendar Feature.
The Calendar Search (shown at the top of the navigation) allows quick retrieval of calendar content that matches your interests.
To use the Calendar Search, simply enter a search keyword or phrase and press ENTER. The search will find any matching content in the calendar including courses, programs, divisions, instructional units or other narrative content.
Search options are available by clicking on the Advanced Search link below the regular search form or by clicking the Modify Search Options link after performing a search. The search options offer more precise searching of the calendar content.
To limit your search to only specific types of calendar content, check only the checkboxes for content categories you wish to include in your search.
Check the "Whole Word/Phrase" check box to search for an exact match for a keyword or phrase. For instance, entering "bio" will only return hits in which the term "bio" stands alone; it will not return any instances of the term "biology". The same is true if you enter a phrase.
Click "Show Prefix List" to display a list of all course prefixes available in the calendar. You may enter a keyword phrase that includes a course prefix and code (like "ENG 101") to better locate a specific course. The closest available matches will be returned first.
Click the Search button to perform the search.
You may easily browse through the calendars by using the different navigation links on the left side of the page. Each calendar may have its own distinct set of navigation links.
Some links may display pages about the calendar or other related information. Other links may display listings of courses or programs within the calendar. These navigation links may display other information that is broken down by various methods such as by divisions, by instructional units, or by program, or course types.
Some pages may show "Go to Information..." links following a division or instructional unit which, when clicked, will display more information about that division or instructional unit.
Course and program titles are almost always shown as links. Clicking on a course title will display course information below the course title about the course and a link to Add to My NLC Calendar (course information may be shown in a pop up window if you have an older browser). Clicking on a program title will display all the related information for the program as well as the Add program to My NLC Calendar link.
Clicking on the Add to My NLC Calendar link will add information to your My NLC Calendar for later retrieval. See below to learn more about Using the My NLC Calendar Feature.
Some divisions, instructional units, programs, and courses may have FlashPoint Links associated with them that may be a text link or a click-able graphic. These FlashPoint Links are links to an additional digital resource. The digital resource may be another web page, a text document, audio, video, or many other types of media and may require a special browser plug-in.
To view a FlashPoint Link, simply click on it. All FlashPoint Links will be displayed in a new pop up window.
To print a page click the print link. The "Print Friendly" version will open up with just the content of the page in it (no navigation or header). If you click the print link on a "Print Friendly" page the browser will popup with the print dialog allowing you to print that page.
Problems with Gateway Print Links
If your browser does not support the print link you may need to use the operating system or web browser's built in print functions instead.
You may add items to your own personal My NLC Calendar as you browse through the online calendars. The My NLC Calendar feature will retain a list of courses, programs, pages, divisions and saved searches that you have found interesting and wish to save for future visits to the online Northern Lights College calendars.
To add items click the Add to My NLC Calendar link or star icon next to the item in which you are interested. This will open a new popup window that displays all items currently in your My NLC Calendar.
You may remove items from your My NLC Calendar by selecting the checkboxes next to them and clicking the Remove button.
Note: Items suffixed with the text [From Previous Calendar] are from older, outdated calendars that are no longer available. You will need to search within newer calendars to find alternative information to replace them.
The My NLC Calendar feature is based on browser cookies. When you save an item to the My NLC Calendar feature, it will be stored in a browser cookie. The next time you return to the calendar, the browser cookie is opened and the contents of your My NLC Calendar will be retrieved.
If your browser cookies are ever deleted, the contents of your My NLC Calendar will be lost as well.
