RSS feeds – what they are and how to use them

RSS feeds – have you heard of them? Twitter is a glorified set of RSS feeds, but there are many other uses for these handy alerts. Watch this video, from the CommonCraft people in conjunction with Google, and give RSS feeds a try. Subscribe to the St Andrews Skills Academy blog, so that you’ll always know when we’ve posted something new.

If you also install the Google Toolbar, you can add a ‘Google Reader’ button, which will glow bright green whenever a new RSS alert comes in. How’s that for an efficiency measure?!
