Some Resources about RSS/Aggregators

Will Richardson's RSS: A Quick Start Guide for Educators is a great resource for more information and step-by-step documentation for using Bloglines.

 

Quentin D'Souza's RSS Ideas for Educators is another good resource - more detailed and specific examples for using in a learning environment.

 

Vicki Davis' How to Keep Up With All of This is an excellent blog posting to refer to as well.

 

Jeff Utecht's screencast Using RSS Feeds and RSS Feed Readers is a resourceful video resource. He also demonstrates subscribing to another RSS feed reader, Netvibes, which is also web-based.

Recommended RSS/Aggregators

Bloglines

If you sign in with my CCPS e-mail address and use the password "lwit123" you'll see the one I created for sharing session. Though you are welcome to play with this one, I encourage you to create your own account and add subscriptions that interest you! Anytime there is a new posting, you are notified and can choose to read or not to read! This free tool is web-based, so you can check on your subscriptions from any Internet access.

 

Blogbridge

This is a different type of RSS feed reader in that it is downloaded on your computer, rather than being web-based. The advantage of this type is that if you don't have Internet access, you still have access to your feeds. On the flip side, you will not be able to access your subscriptions from any computer.

 

Rojo

This one comes recommended by some of the technology bloggers. Looks like it would be a good resource for what others are reading, if nothing else!

 

In addition, the following are more versatile RSS feed readers. These sites offer you an opportunity to personalize your aggregator with other features, such as e-mail, address books, calendars, etc.:

Netvibes (mentioned above)
