Reinventing RSS and How it Can Benefit Your Business

OpenSesame

The shutdown of Google Reader is far from the end of RSS. In fact, it has become a catalyst for innovation in news aggregation and has driven attention towards the value of RSS in social reach and brand development. At OpenSesame, we’ve been looking at ways to make sure our blog is up-to-speed and ready to go. Here are some tips we discovered in the process. Content Revolution

Workplace learning in 10 years

As staff familiarise themselves with blogs, wikis, RSS, YouTube and Twitter, and as more tech-savvy Gen-Y’s & Z’s join the organisation, the demand for self-paced, self-directed learning will accelerate.

Filtered RSS Feed

Experiencing eLearning

Partly due to a request from Tony Karrer for eLearning Learning and partly because others have asked in the past, I did a little research on how to filter an RSS feed so I can provide a feed without the daily bookmarks posts. If you’re interested in that, here’s the RSS feed without bookmarks and the link for subscribing via email.

It was quick and easy (and free).

Change Your RSS Feed?

Tony Karrer

A while ago, I created a feedburner feed for this blog so I could add lots of stuff to the feed - most importantly I publish a daily summary of my new del.icio.us links. It appears that most people still point to my Blogspot feed. would suggest that readers of this blog might want to change over to the FeedBurner feed to get this added functionality: [link

Aide RSS Filtering Tool

Tony Karrer

AideRSS looks at a variety of sources of information including comments, technorati, bloglines, icerocket and del.icio.us to determine what posts are generating the most interest. It provides a widget that allows you to show your top posts for month or year. You can see what it thinks are mine in the right column of the blog. I've been creating similar information manually for a while, so it's nice to have an automated support for it. I've not quite figured out how to take a very large list of blogs, e.g., all edublogs, and have it filter those down. I'll let you know if that works later

Managing your RSS Feeds

Tony Karrer

Coming back from my vacation, I realized that I needed to go through a clean up exercise again on my RSS feeds. It turned out to work pretty well for me this time around because I have been following the advice I've seen a couple of places: Controlling RSS Overload. Animal House Style Managing Many RSS Feeds The Myth of Keeping Up Personal Learning for Learning Professionals - Using Web 2.0 The same is true of RSS feeds. Right now I have "Trying Out - Aug. 2006" and "Trying Out - Nov. 2006". In other words, right now I'm adding blogs to "Trying Out - Nov. 2006".

Really Cool "3-Minute e-Learning" on Social Networking - Wiki, Social Networking, Social Bookmarking, RSS

Tony Karrer spotted Commoncraft's interesting presentations. find the snippets from Commoncraft very illustrative of the "3-Minute e-Learning" application points. They are short and wacky but effective. I am sure it is low budgeted as well. The topics on Social Networking and Learning 2.0 are good resources on the basics.

Will Blogs, Wikis, RSS, Mashups be Used in Corporate eLearning?

Tony Karrer

In this post, Dave unfortunately lumps together blogs, wikis, mashups, rss feed together (probably because eLearning 2.0 RSS and Blogs have much slower adoption. I saw another post from Dave Boggs, Has The Blogging Trend Begun To Fade, Even Before It Ever Got Started In Corporate Training / e-Learning Environments? and web 2.0 often lump them together). However, I think the answer about adoption rates is going to be quite different for these things with Wikis and Mashups being adopted at a very high rate. We will dump Dreamweaver and RoboInfo in favor of Wikis.

Blogs and RSS as Learning Tools

eLearning Weekly

Many of us techies have been using RSS for years, and you may even run your own blog. think there’s a ton of potential related to RSS in terms of learning and I don’t think many people are harnessing it well (yet). RSS provides an excellent framework for distributing information to groups of people in settings like this. What are some of the obstacles we face in using blogs and RSS readers at our organizations? First, blogs and RSS don’t get much respect in the enterprise. Do you use blogs and/or RSS at your organization?

RSS Primer from the Read/Write Web

Corporate eLearning Strategies and Development

One of my 3 sessions at the upcoming eLearning Guild Conference in Boston is about RSS and eLearning. So, it was wonderful luck to find a great post from Alex Iskold on the Read/Write Web blog called The Future of RSS. "In short, because of RSS ubiquity it is now a very attractive delivery medium for all kinds of content. So in this post, we look at RSS today and ask if RSS is evolving into a tool for delivering complex, semantically rich information." Hopefully, our discussion next week can help fill in the gaps

With the new Guild website you will find the  RSS feed for the eLearning Insider.  While its great that you might implement blogs, wikis, and RSS for your school, company, or organization, its even more important that you start using these tools yourself as personal development tools.  Its up to YOU to investigate changing your daily habits and workflow.  How can we expect those that we support to embrace the new tools if we don't use them ourselves?

Blog Guides and Managing Your RSS Feeds

The Learning Circuits

On a similar subject, I recently posted how I Manage My RSS Feeds. Based on my experience in visiting blogs for the first time and having a hard time deciding what the content of the blog really was, I decided that what I needed was a blog guide. So, I decided to create a Blog Guide for my own blog and put a permanent link for it on my blog up in the header. Since I just saw a post by Jim Belshaw that referenced it - Personal Reflections: Tony Karrer and eLearning Technology where Jim said: I do wish more people would follow this approach.

How I Caught Up on my RSS Feeds

Learning Developments

After about three months of active blog reading I've finally caught up on my RSS feeds. When I first started subscribing to blogs I found so many interesting topics that I wanted to read everything. Time quickly became a frustrating factor. Now I want to share a couple of ways I've been able to manage the information overload that is common when subscribing to many blogs. Quickly determine if the blog post your looking at is pertinent information for your job over the next year. While a lot of the postings about learning 2.0 Become an expert skimmer. Don't be afraid to miss information.

Grazr - organizing RSS just keeps getting better

Corporate eLearning Strategies and Development

RSS has the potential to become the next learning pipeline, and OPML is just a piece of that. will definitely be working this into my RSS presentation (session 411) at DevLearn2006 I just found this on TechCrunch. haven't had much time to review it but from first glance it looks like something I've been thinking about for quite some time. Before I get into that let's look at what Grazr is. Definitely read the TechCrunch review. But does anyone remember mind mapping ? Or information mapping ? Well Grazr, to me, looks like reverse information, or mind, mapping. think.

If we are to be the life-long learners we want to be, then you can't possibly have a better way of doing it than with RSS connections to the world.

Amazing opportunity to be completely connected to, and pulling, content that you are interested in as it is evolving over time. There are still plenty of folks that just don't participate in the Web2.0 world and all I can say is that you are missing out. If you have a better solution, I'd love to hear it

I’ve twitterised my blogroll

E-Learning Provocateur

For example, RSS allows us to aggregate feeds from our favourite sources, without the need to visit each and every site every day. Thus far I’ve been using NewsGator as my RSS reader, which I think is an excellent tool. However, I’ve finally cottoned on to the fact that Twitter can also be used as an RSS reader.
