Google Blog Search Problems

Tony Karrer

Unfortunately, it looks like Google Blog Search has decided that they will now include the entire contents of the web page rather than just the contents of the RSS feed. I want a nice clean RSS feed of any posts that include links to my various sites. I rely pretty heavily on Google Blog Search to help me find people who are citing blog posts of mine so that I can see that kind of conversation.

Communication problems in Dubai

Clive on Learning

You, by navigating to my blog site or by receiving notification through an RSS feed, read this. It's one in the morning, I'm in Dubai airport and it's another two hours until my connecting flight to Malaysia. In spite of the hour I've just had a curry, because I'm losing track of meal times. Needless to say the locals were eating Macdonalds. I daren't go to sleep in case I miss the call for my flight, so I thought I'd better connect up.

Writing Conversations for eLearning

That problem is one that can be addressed through your training. If your audience faces a similar challenge, they can immediately see that this training is relevant because they want to solve this problem too.

Learning with e's

The limitations were cited as 'not knowing whether someone else had posted a reply' (can be remedied by an RSS alert) and waiting for a response from someone else that is a long time coming (a cattle prod can be applied to remedy this problem).

The first involved a group of students who are in their third year of teacher training.

I Need an LMS. Where Do I Start?

Experiencing eLearning

The problem is that these features are nearly ubiquitous, so it doesn’t help you narrow your choices. As before, email and RSS readers may want to view this on Slideshare.). If you’re just starting the process of selecting and implementing a new Learning Management System (LMS), the process can feel a little overwhelming. This is especially true for organizations who don’t currently have an LMS and are starting completely from scratch.

Not sure what happens to the RSS feeds. Can you let me know if this causes any big problems? Learning Visions (this blog) -- is getting a new home.

Google is failing us: how to manage the information overflow?

Challenge to Learn

But the real problem is that the results contained 3 images that are definitely not me, but they have my name attached to it and my even role as CEO of easygenerator. I’m not sure if the source of the problem are the sites that contain this incorrect information or that Google screws up. Steve Rosenbaum’s solution for this problem is curation. So I follow all kinds of other blogs with Google reader (via RSS feeds), follow people on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.

About this change to the site…

Clark Quinn

It had some problems, but I was afraid to change it because of the repercussions. Well, it turns out that’s not a problem! So, with this upgrade, I mentioned my problems with the site, and he installed some new themes I could play with. I still need to figure out a way to let folks sign up for Learnlets as an email feed (beyond RSS, but through Feedblitz, the service I use), but other than that it’s pretty much the same.

The evolution of personal learning environments

Origin Learning

We look for solutions on YouTube, Wikipedia, blogs and such online resources when we encounter a problem. In the form of RSS or news feed or social media interactions, people are exposed to information more than ever before. A personal learning environment refers to the tools, technologies, resources etc. that a person uses at the individual level to build on his knowledge base. Imagine a boy called John, who is in his early 20s in the year 1997.

Leaving you with two problems. The conclusion must be (as always): There is not one simple solution to a complex problem.

I’ve got your content right here

Clark Quinn

But their problem was really much simpler. They wondered whether Facebook should have the same, and in this case the answer appeared to be ‘yes’ (blog allows RSS, some folks don’t go onto Facebook), and then the tweet stream could be for shorter pointers, announcements from the posts, whatever.

Google’s soft underbelly

Jay Cross

I’ve been using Feedburner, an online service that’s now part of Google, to offer RSS subscriptions to my blogs. Four months ago, the RSS feed associated with the Informal Learning Blog started to go haywire. I clicked Edit Feed Details and entered my RSS feed. Lots of other people have experienced the same problem. I’ve wasted hours upon hours with one niggling little problem, that, so far as I can tell, was not of my own making.

Personal Learning - Corporate Environment

Learning Rocks

For me, the most important technological component in all this is RSS, really simple syndication, the bit that makes the blogs work and what feeds my Google homepage - the start of my own PLE. The problem was that to use the LMS to distribute all these different versions of the same thing would be a mess. Does anyone out there know of an instance of RSS making it in to the L&D strategy for a large corporation?

You go from push to pull, with RSS feeds you pull information in instead for searching it on the web. By the response I received it seems that we have found a working solution for this problem and that we are adding real value for both the developer and the learner.

I decided to share the list with remaining tools with you. Blogs, writing and reading.
