Keeping Up Online: an Intro to RSS

A website that supports syndication publishes something called a “feed”; that feed can either be collected by a program called a feedreader or news aggregator, or it can be combined (“mashed up”) with another feed. In what follows, I’ll introduce you to some resources to help you get started, and discuss some best practices for managing your feeds.

Wikis (Part 1): Getting Started

Wikis are easy to use, and they really do make possible new ways of thinking about classroom interactions. There are at least two good reasons to use a wiki: 1) the creation of dead-simple web pages (students can create and share multimedia pages without knowing any code), and 2) meaningful, easy collaboration.

Wikis (Part 2): In the Classroom

The thing to remember about wikis is that they’re platforms for super-easy collaboration, and that wikis in principle make all aspects of a site, including organization and navigation, user-editable. This gives users a remarkable amount of power to shape material to suit their ends–which may/may not align with a class’s.
