RSS Feed Readers

I've done a few workshops about using RSS feed readers or aggregators, and decided that I should add the web-based handout to the MERLOT community.

I make all of my presentation materials available online, at least until such time that they become so old as to be worthless (link rot).

Here is a direct link to the Zoho Writer page for Reading RSS Feeds - Blog Aggregators.

Finally, I'd like to make available a fine little video from Common Craft on understanding feed readers called "RSS in Plain English." I'll embed it here with their permission. I've seen this embedded in at least three of the blogs I read regularly, but today when I saw it on Nancy's blog I decided that I had better pay more attention.

There are two types of Internet users, those that use RSS and those that don't. This video is for the people who could save time using RSS, but don't know where to start.

Hi Barry, Very cool RSS submission to the MERLOT community. I enjoy finding MN colleagues on the MERLOT site.
