RSS readers in information literacy classes
Posted by knockels on 17 July, 2008
I already include RSS in my “Keeping up to date” class that I do for the Student Learning Centre. I show my Bloglines account and talk about the various different types of things there. I mention Outlook 2007 (and Internet Explorer 7) but there may indeed be scope for covering Outlook in more detail once it is available off campus.
I’ve tried out all sorts of things in Bloglines – news, weather, football, blogs, LRA, journals TOCs, cartoons, and so on, but there is definitely a divide opening up between what I am likely to use myself (have found several very useful looking blogs over recent weeks) and what is possible.
Also, I do find it easy to let RSS get out of hand and discover that there are 200 items to read in one feed!
