Let information find you rather than you finding the information.
All men by nature desire to know


  • How do you keep up to date with websites that publish regular updates?
  • Is there an easy way to automatically receive updates from websites when new content is posted without the need to visit your favourite websites?

Yes, RSS technology provides an easy way for you to keep up to date with new information from your favourite websites and in this tutorial we will show you how.

Many open online courses, including OERu courses, incorporate learner activities distributed across many websites. RSS technology is a great way to keep up with the individual course blog reflections and those course websites which are of particular interest to you. You are in control and decide what feeds you want to monitor.

Save time and let information find you rather than you looking for information!
