Set up your own RSS Feeds

You can set up your own RSS feeds that broadcast your favorite news Websites or for sharing other information with your teachers.

Some Websites use RSS to deliver articles and article previews to readers who are simply too busy to browse to their favorite sites and dig up the content they are interested in. Other sites use RSS to alert users of new products or upcoming events.

  • Use a News Aggregator: an RSS "newsreader" or "aggregator" will fetch and organize recent content and provide simple ways to read it. BlogLines is an aggregator for PCs, Macs, or Linux and any browser.
  • Grab the RSS Feeds: On most browsers you can right-click the link and select "copy shortcut" or "copy target address" or something similar. And again, some RSS readers will "auto discover" the RSS feeds on sites you browse, so no cutting and pasting is necessary!
  • Check the RSS Feeds: review the feeds you collected
